Victoria 1853 Half-Sovereign, superb example

Victoria (1837-1901), gold Half Sovereign, 1853, first young head left, type A1, small date below, VICTORIA DEI GRATIA, toothed border around rim both sides, rev. crowned quartered shield of arms in frame, BRITANNIARUM REX FID: DEF: weight 4.00g (Marsh 427; S.3859). Lightly toned with underlying brilliance, just a few tiny hairline and surface marks, otherwise good extremely fine, hard to find a better example with wonderful eye appeal.

The Latin legends translates on obverse as "Victoria by the Grace of God," and on the reverse as "Queen of the Britons, Defender of the Faith."
