Auction 129
English Coins 1887 or utilising dies from the small B.P. currency issue. While the 1887 Proof issues use this special die sinking, the proof offered here appears to have been produced from the small B.P. currency dies. All new currency dies appear to have had Proof counterparts created, often with one or two struck for inspection, archive or presentation purposes. This piece has some unusual features, namely, the flan is about a 1/3 of a millimetre wider than usual allowing use of a bevelled or satinised edge. This broad, flat and even edge is always characteristic of 1887 Proofs. The milling, uniquely, is concave, mirror-like and less thick, unlike the standard small B.P. currency piece. This is the only such example known to Peter Davies and represents a extremely rare variety. Approaching EF with some surface marks
