KM-744, S-3883, 28.29 grams, 39mm. Crowned portrait of Victoria faces left, VICTORIA DEI GRATIA BRITANNIAT.REG:F:D., reverse: crowned cruciform shields, emblems in angles, inscribed 1847 UNDECIMO lettered edge. Glittering mirrored surfaces with lightly frosted obverse and reverse devices. A superb, razor-sharp proof striking with a high, sharp wire rim. Multi-colored, rich iridescent toning is simply magnificent in terms of eye appeal - the obverse an exquisite blend of gold, sunset-red, and turquoise-blue, the reverse shows an even display of reddish-golden shades that mesmerize the eye of the beholder. This coin is a masterpiece, lovingly kept, and preserved by the current consignor for many, many years. It is worth a premium bid as it simply cannot be replaced. Gem Proof
