    Victoria "Plain 5" 20 Cents 1858 MS65 PCGS, London mint, KM4. Plain 5 variety. An extraordinarily challenging denomination to locate in gem certification, with the vast majority having seen heavy circulation. Presently outranked by a mere two MS66's and one MS66+ at PCGS out of nearly 360 yet graded, for comparison, we would note that the Dominion Collection piece certified at a mere MS63, the Cook piece tying the present coin, though falling far behind in terms of overall eye appeal. Even viewed with the naked eye, the offering contains a virtually Specimen-like finish, its surfaces glassy and punctuated by touches of sky-blue and russet tones within the recesses of the raised features. Though some light marks can be detected under magnification to confirm the designation, this is truly a standout selection through and through.
