ST 1859 Ec - 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. The D used is much larger
and wider than normal that a crescent shaped cut has occurred at the
top right (2 o'clock) to allow for the colon dot ! This over-strike / repair
is similar to that of ST 1859 Eb except in that repair they have used a
1 size larger font that appears to be acceptable.
The D of F: D: has also been over-truck with a larger size D font - this
D now has a crescent shaped cut at the bottom right (4 o'clock) to
allow for the colon dot !
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.
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 also Large. The 9 extends
slightly below the base line.
Grade: Bright EF
