Victoria 1887 proof Shilling

Victoria (1837-1901), silver Proof Shilling, 1887, crowned and veiled Jubilee type bust left, angled J type J.E.B. on truncation for engraver Joseph Edgar Boehm, Latin legend and toothed border surrounding both sides, VICTORIA DEI GRATIA BRITT: REGINA F: D:, rev. crowned quartered shield of arms, within Garter motto HONI. SOIT. QUI MAL. Y. PENSE.. date either side of strap-end at bottom, (Bull 3138; Davies 982 dies 1+C; ESC 1352; S.3926). Toned practically as struck, has been graded and slabbed by Coin Grading Service UK as UNC91.

CGS UK certification 9240-SH.V1.1887.08

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

London Coin Grading Service as it is now termed, claim that grade 91 in their 100 point system is a traditional "Almost FDC" and equates to an American Sheldon scale of 66-67. This estimation concurs from when this coin was formerly physically graded by NGC as PF66 Cameo.

Struck for the fiftieth anniversary, Golden Jubilee of the reign.
