Auction 149
English Coins 1887 Jubilee Head , with the obverse displaying 14 Beads to Queen’s necklace rather than 13 on the standard currency and Proof coin. J.E.B. initials fully on the truncation, on the standard Proof issue they encroach slightly into the field. On the 14 bead coin there is a smaller gap between the A in VICTORIA and the following D of D:G: .This obverse as Baldwin's Bentley sale 8/5/2013 Lot 1228. Reverse: The P of the B.P. initials is poorly rendered, appearing more like a triangle. There are also no stops in between. The top line of the streamer on the helmet makes a smooth curve onto the next line down, whereas on the standard Proof it is distinctly separate. The 7 of the date has an extra piece protruding from the right of the horizontal stroke. The Reverse characteristics are similar to a reverse uniface Proof in the Museum, and had previously not been recorded before on a Proof or currency piece. UNC with prooflike fields, the design and legend heavily frosted. This reverse is as the Royal Mint uniface piece. Both obverse and reverse dies types are known, but until now, not on the same coin, and the existence of this piece links together the two previously known types. Comes with a comprehensive folder full of interesting data and research relating to this piece and the other pieces bearing the obverse and reverse die types and their developments and origins, along with many useful and important photographs. Also with authentication from Robert Matthews(ex Royal Mint and a recognised expert in authentication). Slabbed and graded CGS 75, a unique opportunity to acquire this important and unique piece

Hammered Coins s, Three small STRIPS of '' type farthings each containing a number of uncut coins, with key and dagger mintmarks, maybe others as well. Inverted axes. All with the very rare 'CARA', thus hitherto considered contemporary forgeries, but the location, stated to be in the well of Scarborough Castle may date them to the 1645 . This provenance certainly appears on the accompanying card, in old hand-written script, the card glued in half, internally with ornate script print and part of the date '191-', suggesting that the card was written about 100 years ago, when the strips were found. The strips were bought in an auction some 30 years ago. They were then in a frame, along with the card. They were recently offered to the Rotunda Museum in Scarborough, but they declined to purchase them as almost identical strips of farthings were already in their possession. These, they said, 'were found in the Castle well during excavations in the 1920s'; hence the same provenance being attached to these They are heavily patinated but with much clear, sharp, detail. Several side edges show circular cut-outs. Dimensions (maximum) - Strip 1: 42mm x 15mm. Strip 2:42mm x 14.5mm.; Strip 3: 33mm x 17.5mm. UNIQUE, and, for several reasons, highly important numismatically.

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
