    Description

    Victoria copper Proof Pattern Crown 1887 PR66+ Brown NGC, ESC-2685. By J. Rochelle Thomas, produced for Spink & Son. A lovely piece of numismatic intrigue in a premium certified grade, its variety defined by the combination of a plain truncation, inclusion of Spink & Son beneath the date, and MADE IN BAVARIA impressed into the edge. Particularly rare with only five struck, privately produced by commission of Spink as a proposal for Victoria's new Crown and thus not an official Royal Mint issue. Despite this, these patterns are ever-popular when they appear and provide a vastly different portrait of Victoria than that seen on the Royal Mint coins. Sleek and rich chocolate-brown surfaces grace this superb Crown, pale white luster breaking through at the peripheries, minimal signs of wear or contact marks to the crisp devices. A highly sought-after and enigmatic pattern, and an ideal specimen for the specialist collector.
