I bought this one today, well I just had to post a scan - Isn't she beautiful?
Even better it looks to be an overdate 1848/7 - the first 8 may be over something too (I need a better scan for this bit....)

Lovely portrait.   Earlier today, I was admiring it on several groats.

I see that several denominations of 1848 coin are 'over 1847' or even 'over 1846'.

Ilford, Essex, near London, England.

People look for problems and complain.   Engineers find solutions but people still complain.


Due to their size, these got bumped quickly and harshly and the hair over the ribbon melts like snow. Yours is exquisite. Congratulations.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
