Glamour Shots: 1853 PT

Recommended Posts

I had to share these, and courtesy of Richard am able to & the lustre in hand is really wonderful albeit the coin a bit softly struck:

A choice piece of a coin which is rare anyway, but in that high grade, very rare. Really nice, well done. 

The PT 1853 is even rarer still with an italic date.

Ah thanks, when I saw it for sale I had to jump. Sadly, where we live the humidity is not kind to copper and so some of the "redness" has subdued. The lustre however is astonishing. Yes, wish it was the italic date/number 5.

Here's mine, bought DNW auction Sept 2008 - quite a steep price (£260 hammer), and good lustre on the obverse, but a dark reverse.

DNW's photography is somewhat flattering to the reverse!
