ST 1859 Eb - Obv. 1D

ST 1859 Eb - Rev. A




ST 1859 Eb - D over D

ST 1859 Ea - D over D

(Shown for comparison)

ST 1859 Ea - Large 59


ST 1859 Eb - Obv.1E (F: D: Type - Ab) The C has a top serif.  The O of VICTORIA is

                                 broken at top and just faintly at the bottom.

                                 The 'G' font is now with a LONG centre crossbar in D: G: & REGINA.

                                The D of D: G: is double struck D over D. This over-strike / repair is 

                                similar to that of ST 1859 Ec except in that repair they have used a 

                                larger & wider D than was required. The D used has a crescent

                                shaped cut at top right to allow for the colon dot ! Whereas on this 

                                example the D is one font size large & taller but is an acceptable repair.

                                There is a strong show of the die clashing as the top of the ribbon bow

                                shows above Victoria's head between the BRI in the legend.

                                See ST 1859 Ec for picture.

                                V of VICTORIA & RE of REGINA double struck.

                                Die crack at 3 o'clock - running through I of REGINA 2 mm.

                                Hair-line scratch in Victoria's hair, above her ear - forwards for 3.5 mm

                       Rev.  There is at least 2 to 3 ghosting's of Victoria's head.

                       Date: The 5 is larger than the small 5.The 9 is even Larger. The 9 extends 

                                slightly below the base line.

                     Grade: Bright  EF?/EF
