1853 Maundy set - This is one of the rarer dates in the Victorian Maundy series.
This is partly due to the threepence being extremely rare in any grade and especially
so in a choice grade. The difference between a Maundy and a currency 3d of this period is
that they are extremely difficult to tell apart ! So silver 3d collectors will on occasions
buy the Maundy set if a 3d alone is not available .
On the set the Threepence is choice bright. There is a Die crack inside the "Large" 3.
See ST 1853 A for details
The set is choice Bright with a hint of toning. The set is very well matched - EF+-pAS
The set comes with an choice original red Victorian un-date "circular" Maundy case
Victorian Maundy un-dated case with the 1853 Maundy set. Inside is red silk & velvet.
Circular Maundy cases are far scarcer than the oblong cases.
