Is it wishful thinking on my part

or does the C in VICTORIA look like a G??

It does, but difficult to be really sure when this worn. Have you tried slanted light across the coin ?

The tail of the G looks a little taller and pushed out to the right than the definite VIGTORIA maybe ? Difficult to be definite.

It does but really low grade so you would have to convince the buyer it is - good luck!

Thank you for your feedback....

That was my opinion too...

Too low grade to be sure, however looking more like a G than a C..

and Unable to rule the possibility out..

For the moment it will fill the box, at least until I can find an affordable definite specimen...

Agree with general consensus. Looks like it might be, but so low grade it's impossible to be definitive.

Does look like a G, pictures of the coin Obv & Rev could give your coin more weight. (no pun intended)
