1887 Pattern Shilling by L.C.Wyon

Recommended Posts

I am trying to track down a shilling collector who might know where this coin is. ESC 1406 (3rd. ed.) BSC 1000 (1st. ed.) I know and have seen the Royal Mint example but where is the one sold  Spink & Son 11/7/2001  lot 1039 £1450 (£1668). I have the corresponding sixpence. The designer is said by Davies to be J E Boehm and the engraver said by Seaby & Rayner to be L.C. Wyon.

No word for you here but mostly collect currency Vick silver. I know how frustrating it is to track down specimens such as this 

Bon chance!

I looked at that auction archive. The patterns that were sold that day were incredible. Gold pennies galore.

I have never seen the actual catalogue or the archive. Can you give me a link please?

I have just realised that i was looking at a different auction for patterns. But if you go to search 'Pattern shilling 1887' and look at the Christies.com result, it is there. Also the link above it 'The Mitchell-David Collection' is the one with all the gold patterns that i mentioned. Sorry, i am no good at easy links.

Try searching the Spink archive - you will waste 20 minutes of your life on what must be the worst auction archive website in the world. It has been discussed on here before but they do nothing about it.
