Description

Turkish Crimea, ‘La Crimea’ with designer’s initials “J.B.”, unnamed as issued, a privately made striking of the highest quality and detailing.

 

These issues are believed to have been retailed by Hunt and Roskell after the Crimean War mostly seen in Officer’s groups who could afford this premium version. There are typically 3 official versions, the Sardinian reading “La Crimea”, the British reading “Crimea” and the French reading “Crimee”. For this version they would have to have drawn out a bespoke die based upon an original Sardinian version where the artist also added various intricate details not seen on the originals.
