A handsome,  Victorian,  solid silver single sovereign holder case with a loop for attachment.  Nicely engraved with an engine turned design and a vacant shield shaped cartouche in the centre to the front of the case, and simple engine turned pattern to the back.    Spring loaded, the case works perfectly and is in great condition.   The sovereign holder to the interior is unusual as it is in the form of a horseshoe.  

Hallmarks are visible on the inside of the lid for the Birmingham Assay office with a date mark for 1897 and maker's mark:  Alfred Wigley.  Partial marks are also visible on the spring loaded side of the case. 

A very attractive and unusual sovereign case - great for a collector and in super condition.

Hallmarks:  Birmingham 1897 by Alfred Wigley.
