1847 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 .

4d - Bright. Obv. EF+.  Rev. 6 tiny edge nicks otherwise EF+

3d - Bright centre toned around legend & wreath. The 8 is double struck (slightly to the left). EF/EF+

2d - Bright.  Obv. Couple of tiny pin-head size indents on Victoria's neck.  EF-EF+

1d - Bright. Rev. Edge knock at 1 o'clock. Die cracks at 3 & 9 o'clock.  EF-EF+
