£550.00
A collectable silver Sixpence of Queen Victoria, dated 1864. The obverse features the second uncrowned Young Head of the queen, facing left with the hair bound back with a double fillet, by the engraver William Wyon. Type: A2. The reverse shows the denomination - ‘SIX PENCE’ - at the centre, surrounded by a wreath of laurels (left) and oak leaves (right, tied together with a ribbon. A crown surmounts the design which is the work of Jean Baptiste Merlen The date, which appears at the base shows a ‘plain’ four (as opposed to a serif four). The die number three - an early die - appears just above the date. These Young Head Sixpences have many variations, making them a fascinating series to study and collect. This excellent example has been graded MS 64 by NGC, the equivalent of Choice Uncirculated. Spink 3909, Davies 1064.
