Queen Victoria's Great Seal of the Realm, ca. 1850s. 634 grams, 6-1/4" in diameter, 7/8" thick. Very rare and historically important large, light-brown hard wax seal (with original braided hanging cord and tin storage case) featuring Queen Victoria on the throne on the obverse and on horseback on the reverse with the inscription VICTORIA DEI GRATIA BRITANNIARUM REGINA FIDEL DEFENSOR (Victoria, by the Grace of God, Queen of the Britains, Defender of the Faith). Several surface chips on edges and small interior chip on horseback side, some air bubbles as made, but otherwise a good example of a seldom-seen seal attached to important state documents. With photo-certificate.
