1925 Shilling, Have You Seen Better?

I rather like this 1925 shilling gotten some years ago from the recently departed John Welsh. Definitely special. Sorry for the slightly scratched slab with even a green spot, not on coin.

    Not with that reverse

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

    I'm not sure which green spot you're referring to, but these appear to be on the coin:

    Wow, CK, no fooling you. Yes that coin is a copper=nickel pattern and graded proof 66 by hosts (looks a lot nicer than photos show) and is a pattern for the upcoming "new coinage" for 1927. Actually quite a rare piece and was lucky to get the 3d, 6d, and shilling both with the silver pattern reverse with MODEL obverse and the copper-nickel patterns that have obverse also. Can't remember if Norweb had this complete group of six.
    Norweb had carte blanche access to all of the major London firms and shook loose coins that were often only rumored to exist; I had set the lofty goal of surpassing their silver collection 1920-1954....

    Nice coin. See if you can loosen off some of that verdigris with a moistened toothpick before it grabs on for good.

    I am going to take a good look at it tonight and see in hand what it looks like. It is graded PCGS66

    Yes, I think the one spot which in actual size is very small ought to be addressed. I will drop it at PCGS next show as the coin is so very rare and otherwise in tip-top shape.
