ST 1859 D - Obv. ST 1859 D - Rev.


ST 1859 D - VICTOR(IA)  C over C

ST 1859 D


ST 1859 D - D: G:

ST 1859 D - REGINA

ST 1859 Da - Obv.1D (F: D: Type - A) C over C in VICTORIA (New font C with top serif) 

                                 as per 1st found with 1858 E ! The (inner - under) C is clearer in this 

                                 example than that of 1858 E. The O of VICTORIA is broken at top 

                                 and bottom as seen in 1858 E. Unlike in 1858 E the 'O' is NOT 

                                 double struck !

                                 The other change is that the G font with short cross bar has been

                                 replaced by a 'G' with a LONG centre crossbar in D: G: & REGINA.

                                 There is a die crack through the right leg of N of REGINA.

                        Rev.  There is a die crack from the extremely right base of the 'Crown' just

                                 touching the extreme top right tip of the 3 extending down and touching 

                                 the left side of the 5 (of the date).

                       Date: There appears to be a smaller 5 & Large 9. The 5 is probably 1 size 

                                smaller than the larger 5 examples of this date.

                                The 9 is possibly larger and thicker than previous 9's of this date

                                The 59 have the same base line but the 9 is taller.

                     Grade: Bright  F+   {Rarity is unknown ?]
