Description Victoria Proof Maundy Fourpence (Groat) 1853, KM731.2, S-3917, PR64 NGC. Young Head, plain edge with curious, incuse diagonal milling at intervals. Superb eye-appeal. Only a few dentils lack full definition and the central devices are as crisply impressed as one could imagine. The glassy fields help to confirm the proof designation with a marvelous blanket of blue and gold tone that only adds to the attractiveness. An extremely rare proof, none found in recent auctions, taken from one of the mysterious 1853 proof sets. Realized $646.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
