  • James I gold ten shilling

    James I gold ten shilling "Laurel" (1621-1623)

    £2,425.00

    Mintmark 'Thistle' — 1621 — 23 

    Type Third Coinage, Fourth Head. 

    Ref. no: Schneider - ; N 2117; S 2641A. 

    Obv. Laureate, draped bust of James left, denomination X' behind, 'IACOBVS DIG' MAG' BRI' FRAN' ET HI' REX'. 

    Rev. Crowned Royal Arms on cross fourchee, 

    'HENRICVS ROSAS REGNA IACOBVS', (Henry [united] the roses, James the kingdoms) 

    27mm, 4.43g. GVF - Good Very Fine, well struck, light hair-line scratch before face 

    Not very rare but a very nice example — usually weakly struck this piece has a well struck portrait with although some of the legends are as little weak - also very nice even light toning thus a desirable piece.

    In 1619 there was a currency reform and new 20 and 10 shillings pieces were reduced in weigh making the former coins worth 22 and 11 shillings.

    To make it easy to differentiate between the two coins this new lighter coin was issued with James facing left - the other direction — and wearing a laurel wreath rather than a crown.

    Consequently they became known as a 'Laurels' and 'Half laurels'.

  • British Virgin Islands 1883 (28 Feb) colour scheme proofs

    Paul Fraser Collectibles

    British Virgin Islands 1883 (28 Feb) colour scheme proofs

    £3,950.00

    British Virgin Islands 1883 (28 Feb) colour scheme proofs (160 x 215mm, headed "Appendix" in miniature sheet and with handstamped date at upper right) submitted by De La Rue to the Crown Agents in response to an order for a new ½d value. The problem was that the current 1d keyplate was already in emerald-green (SG24), although "green" was now the international colour for a ½d stamp.

    To illustrate this, De La Rue affixed the current 1d (SG24) and 2½d (SG25) in the upper line, and IMPERFORATE ½d colour trials, watermark CA, in blue, carmine and green, below each item handstamped "CANCELLED" (type D7). In the event, the first printing of the ½d was in yellow, but the universal colours were adopted for the  ½d (green), 1d (carmine) and 2½d (blue) later in 1883-84. A unique and beautiful document with fantastic provenance, ex. J.L. Fredrick and De La Rue archives (The De La Rue Collection p.6506).
