Victoria 1857 Shilling G for D

Victoria (1837-1901), silver Shilling, 1857, inverted G error, second young filleted head left, VICTORIA DEI GRATIA BRITANNIAR: REG: F: G: the last letter of legend an inverted G in error, rev. crowned mark of value within laurel and oak wreath, date below, weight 5.56g (Bull 3009; ESC 1305A R4; Davies 872; S.3904). Toned, surface marks both sides, good fine, reverse better, the error very clear and extremely rare.

The Latin legend translates as "Victoria by the grace of God, Queen of the Britons, Defender of the Faith."

The rarity of this error is perhaps not truly reflected in the R4 rating, this cataloguer having only seen two perhaps three examples, with this coin offered herewith being the best preserved.
