1850 QUEEN VICTORIA FULL SOVEREIGN – NGC MS66 !!!

Victoria (1837 – 1901), Sovereign, 1850, second larger young head left, date below , rev. crowned quartered shield of arms within laurel wreath, emblems below (S 3852C; Marsh 33)

NGC graded MS66 – The SINGLE finest graded 1850 Sovereign at NGC. This pheonominal specimen exhibits an exceptionally bold strike with fully glowing lustre. To remain at this level of grade after 169 years is truly outstanding and certainly a coin for the connoisseur.

Notes from The Bentley Collection Catalogue refering to the 1850 Sovereign

” Mintage 1,402,039 With a relatively low calendar year mintage the 1850 Sovereign has always been considered a rare date in the series, and was perhaps more highly thought of in dealer’s lists of some 50 or 60 years ago, where it is rated as very rare. Other specimens must have come to light since then, as in this cataloguer’s experience the date is merely rare and is on par for availability with the 1849 Sovereign, which is of a similar quantity of mintage, and rated therefore the same by Marsh. Of course in the top grades, as we have demonstrated here, any Sovereign, even for a more common mintage, can be considered rare or even very rare.”
