1889 1/- Victoria silver Shilling - Rare mule of Obv 2 and Rev C

For the variety collector, 1889 is the year where doing your homework can really pay off.  

This coin is very interesting, numismatically - it's a mule of the earlier Rev C, introduced in 1887, and the later large head, introduced in this year, 1889.  

Peter Davies' 1982 publication didn't include this variety, but a list Mr Davies produced in 2013 did, and it has been given the reference D.986A
