Yep, an absolute belter.....well done. How long ago was it slabbed and would you even dare trying a conservation on it 🤷‍♂️ They would at least not attempt it if they thought it couldnt be improved.

Pretty shocked at the level of feedback so thanks all! Difficult to say money well spent considering the cost, but some coins just have to command the price 

@Oldun I'm not actually sure, I suspect quite recently as part of the Bulter Family collection it is designated as. I also bought a 1937 from the same collection so assumed it was a sell off rather than a collection amassed over a long period.

Either way I would never ship this coin, or dream of it coming back out if the slab!

This is an 1871 shield back sovereign (Die No.12) salvaged from the wreck of the R.M.S. Douro.  Following a collision, the Douro sank on the 1st April 1882.

I would not normally buy a “Details” coin, but given it has been to the bottom of the sea for over a hundred years, I think a few scratches are quite acceptable – I was buying the history.  And if it was good enough for the Bentley collection...

Thanks @PansPurse and @FFkook for the Silver. I bought the 1998 USA set to send to my middle lad, as a little gift and hopefully a boost for him as he always works hard to pay for his keep at University- so I don’t have to! (Keep him that is!).  I told all three of them not to grow up- it being an almighty trap- they didn’t listen! 

The 1968 Set- just because the Gillick is my favourite portrait.
