The Baldwins large-rose example coming up next week, cleaned but eye-catching in the photo, is at £1200 when I looked yesterday.

Looks like there's another dot hiding between the V and the I, on the 61.

Two for the price of 1. Bargain.

No ,its just a mark and nothing raised or another dot there , i can see what you mean though.

Sometimes on a picture we can see things (Dots) that we want to be there but are not and just dirt , toning spot , carbon spot ,damage or general marks.

Almost as if we want it to be something that often is not and by keep looking convince ourself it is.

Well spotted though 👍

No hesitation in posting this 1841 colon after REG. Superb coin, a/UNC with lustre, and a great strike.

Yes, nice coins from the proof die - there is a straight hairline from B's arm/trident join to the end of her further away knee on both proof and currency.

I can't detect that line on any of my specimens.

Definitely on my currency and the BM's bronzed proof. And also on the bronzed proof sold by Colin Cooke several years ago.

I would have thought that as the colon variety is always presumed to be a mono-die variety (after striking the proofs), it should be on all. It may be that yours are later strikings or more worn. It is a very thin  hairline.

Bingo, you can just see it on my specimen's photo from the LCA Roland Harris auction:

It doesn't show on the photo of my proof but I'll take a look in the flesh.

I've just looked at mine through a strong loupe, and there is absolutely no sign of any such hairline.

Nor, interestingly, is there any trace of an upward die crack through the 8 of the date, as there is on some.

There is, however, slight evidence, barely visible to the naked eye, of the common die clash mark, which shows up between the bottom of the Queen's pony tail and her neck. Often this is very visible and easily seen.

Strange it's not apparent on the copper proof. Worth further research as they say. My currency has the noticeable fake ribbons as you mention, probably more evident than yours.

Thinking about it, two scenarios occur to me; either the copper proofs were made before the bronzed proofs and this die polish line only appeared then, or the toning has hidden the hairline from view.

The die crack through the numeral 8 on the 1841 REG: is generally NOT present. I have seen it on only 2 of the 11 REG: specimens that I have owned. There is also by then some additional flawing through the VICTORIA legend.

By the time these obverse flaws appear, on the later strikes, the reverse is also then seen with flaws appearing from Britannia's toes up to the F of DEF..............and then onwards through the top of the legend on the right of the coin. Attached pictures refer.
