A Gorgeous R7 Victoria Proof Saint-George Sovereign!

Victoria gold Proof Sovereign 1871, S-3856 variant, KM752, WR-319 (R7: 1-2 known), Young Head, plain edge, raised "WW" half sunken over a lower "WW" in truncation, St George reverse, short tail, large raised "B.P." to right of date, medal-rotation die alignment ("struck en medaille" states WR), PR64 Ultra Cameo NGC, and indeed this is an exceptionally choice and wonderfully eye-appealing proof, fully struck, having just a few wispy contact marks and hairlines, Victoria's portrait silky smooth in texture, the mirrored fields evincing the classic orange-peel texture, rims broad and high of great sharpness, and blessed with gorgeous light gold toning. Very close to flawless. Seemingly 3 known with two in Bentley and possibly finer than the nicer Bentley Collection specimen (Lot 627); if not, then tied for Finest Known. Ex Millennia and Jacob Y. Terner Collections.

The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
