MS 1848 - obv.

M4 1848 - OR (VICTORIA)


M4 1848 - RE (REGINA)

1848 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 Fourpence is brilliant (bright) the O & R of VICTORIA have gaps at the top. The B

has a gap at the top and bottom both R's have gaps at the top in BRITANNIAR. The R of REGINA

also has a gap at the top and the E has a slight gap at the bottom. Bright EF+-pAS

The Threepence: Obv. Light tone in legend. Rev. Blue greenish tone.   EF+-pAS. 

The Twopence: Obv. Light tone in legend. Blue greenish tone.   EF+-pAS

The Penny is Bright.  EF+-pAS

The set is choice and well matched by grade - EF+-pAS
