Description

Cape of Good Hope bronze Pattern Penny 1889, KM-Pn1, far colons, MS63 RB NGC, reflective surfaces and a lot of mint red remaining, with some bluish hues. A very pleasing specimen. These are variously graded by the certification services as PR, PL MS, and MS, as this one is, but all were issued similarly struck, minted for Otto Nolte of Berlin using dies engraved by Wolfgang Lauer of Nuremburg, Germany. Hern further states that these were prepared as salesmen's samples, and originally most were not saved with care, as being of only curiosity value. As a consequence, these now very popular early ZAR coins are quite scarce in the better states of preservation. Inherent in these pieces, considering the English queen's portrait prepared by Germans, is the conflict for territory and sovereignty between the two imperial nations which would erupt about two decades after this interesting piece was minted.
