This very rare victoriatus is a variety of the Cr. 89/1a "club" series victoriatus but without the club! If you're interested, you can read a bit about how to identify this variety in this guide to the anonymous victoriati written by Kenneth L. Friedman and Richard Schaefer but the easiest feature to spot is the particular style of the base of the trophy on this issue which takes the form of two dots which appear disconnected from the post.
