    Description

    Victoria pattern Sixpence 1887, by J.R. Thomas for Spink & Son, ESC-1781, struck in aluminum, plain edge, PR64 NGC, brilliant gray surfaces with glittering mirrored fields. This little rarity offers a portrait of the queen wearing the bejeweled "small crown" (to be seen today among the Crown Jewels display at the Tower of London) and shows her wearing a veil; thus it is a cross between the adopted Jubilee Head and Old Head styles. Legend is in English. Reverse motif is the Order of the Garter supported by a crowned lion and a collared unicorn. Struck from dies engraved by Thomas and produced by the Nuremberg company of L.C. Lauer, privately for the London numismatic firm of Spink & Son. ESC notes that 20 were struck in this metal, and rates it R4 today.
