    sg86 got a reaction from Murph in 1874 Shield - Die 35 (Myth coin)   
    1874 represents the last year for the shield Sovereign at the London Royal Mint and is therefore the rarest.
    The calendar year mintage for the Sovereign this year is a mere 520,713 but this also includes the more numerous St George reverse pieces. The shield reverse must have totalled a mere fraction of this mintage. The shield Sovereigns of this period have individually numbered dies, a way of identifying which press on which journey of which day minted the coinage.
    Only seven different die numbers are purported to exist as defined by Marsh, but only 3 numbers 28, 32 and 33, have ever been seen.
     
    Until now...... Yes I've acquired this coin which has remained effectively a Myth until today! Extremely excited about this one
     
    note: marks on obverse aren't digs it is some kind of resin, will get this professionally cleaned at some point in the future

    My newest upgrade. I sold my previous AU53 and got this beauty. Although there is a 62 top grade , according to New York Sale auction in January , the owner of the 62 broke the slab and regraded as 61. So apparently there are 2 -61 on exist , the one is on my hands. None better.  Die number 32. Enjoy.

    Now as everyone knows I've viewed many 1000s of sovereigns, and not once even with high scrutiny have I seen this type of error before, in fact because I only collect sovereigns I didn't even know it existed 🙄
    Interesting little coin and bonus grade!
    Shame the holder sits right where the error is, may break the slab!

    PCGS basically told me that Spink would have to recognise it, well sorry I'm not giving them my research to take credit for. 
    NGC said they would label it as requested if they agreed with the error, but it would be added to their database and wouldn't use my reference, again not giving me credit for the time taken to research and discover these coins 
    Looks like I'll have to work harder and get things published and recognised off my own back first 🙂
