ST 1847 Af - Obv.1 (F: D: type - Af)
Rev. Left tie ribbon and wreath stalk fully struck *
Date: All numerals - Large. The 8 is over an 8 (slightly to the left)
Grade: Choice Slightly prooflike field pAS Deep tone
* I have only ever had four examples of this extremely rare date and as I did not
take much notice, previously, I cannot determine how many had full or part
left tie ribbon & wreath stalk. See 1846 part left ribbon & wreath stalk.
At least two other 1847, that I have the scan of had full left ribbon, etc.
At present I have three examples in stock and this example has the normal
(FULL) tie ribbon at the left side and full length wreath stalk.

Whether it is Ex-Maundy or currency it is still extremely rare and highly
