Victoria 1880 Sovereign, second 8 over 7, long tail, WW buried, clear small BP

Victoria (1837-1901), gold Sovereign, 1880, second 8 over 7 in date, first young filleted head left of the third style, WW buried in truncation for engraver William Wyon, date below, Latin legend and toothed border surrounding, VICTORIA DEI GRATIA, rev. St George and dragon right, long tail to horse, no spur of hair in upper left curve, date in exergue, small B P initials clear to upper right, weight 7.95g (Bentley 315; Marsh 91A; S.3856A). Toned unevenly with handling and bagmarks, a bold fine.

The Latin legends translates on obverse as "Victoria by the Grace of God Queen of the Britain's, Defender of the Faith."

Interestingly this is struck from a different die to the other overdate coins seen as it has no spur of hair in the curve of the tail where there usually is one.
