What an elegant, Victorian looking coin in beautiful condition with the lovely patina age provides.

This coin originally belonged to a coin collector who stored it in our safe for years.  Eventually we acquired his collection in the condition he left it and other than sealing it in plastic it is sold as he left it. I have tested it with a magnet and weighed it.
