1862 Gothic florin at Noonan's sale today (4 April)

Recommended Posts

Any thoughts about this 1862 Gothic florin, which went for £360 + BP at today's Noonan's sale? My suspicions were raised by the "leg" instead of "reg" error and the weak strike of the last "i" in the date.

I noticed that lot at Noonas as well.  For the broken r, i also have a gothic florin with broken m in date, i think it may be happened sometimes in some VF/F example.  For the weakened i in date, i don't have any idea, coz the 2nd last i is not weak, however the shoulder is worn coincidentally.  For the price, I think £446 for this 1862 Gothic is a bit higher, maybe around £300 is more reasonable if this is not a counterfeit one.  However a decent example for 1862 is not showing up often.
