||James II Fourpence 1687/6, S-3414, MS65 NGC. A really gorgeous example of the largest denomination used in Maundy sets, boldly struck and having superb eye-appeal, the king's portrait splendidly detailed, the surrounding broad raised rim undisturbed and seeming to frame the royal image, with gleaming luster beneath vivid amber-gold and bluish green iridescent toning. About as fine as exists. All of this king's coins are difficult to find in any grade higher than EF.
