1872 Queen victoria shilling

Recommended Posts

Another Queen Victoria query. Can anyone tell me how this would happen on the head side please? Gives her a look like her hair has escaped from her her hairband 🙄

It's just a cud, not actually part of her hair at all.

It's not a cud as far as I can see because there's no extra metal. The shape of the curl coming out of her forehead matches the profile of the gap between the bottom left stalk end and the lowest leaves on the left side. The stalk end is visible under the first A of GRATIA and the left hand branch detail can be seen to a point under her chin.

Absolutely nothing to do with her hair.

There's nothing wrong with it. Die clashes happened all the time.
