Description

Orange Free State pattern Penny 1888, Hern-016, MS63 BN PCGS, dark-chocolate brown, a lovely color, with a bold strike and mostly squared off rims. The charming obverse features three horns, or cornucopia, one beneath and two hanging from a tree (probably a thorn tree), with the motto GEDULD EN MOED ("Patience and Courage") beneath. This is a really pleasing example. Much confusion exists in references concerning patterns of this type. The KM numbers have been rearranged but still do not account for all varieties. This specimen, for instance, is similar to KMX-Pn6 (C-N) but in bronze, a distinctive variety with LC/L instead of the dot below the denomination. Hern's descriptions are best. As well, the slabbing companies call some Proof and others MS. Hern states that these pieces were actually salesmen's samples, most struck in Berlin with prooflike surfaces, and he calls them all "uncirculated." Nonetheless, they remain very popular and excellent examples of the early ZAR coinage.
