Description:
George IV Proof set 1821. Laureate head. An extremely rare item that appears to be an intact, original set, as the toning matches on all pieces and it comes with an original velvet-lined box (the first the cataloger has seen). The quality is not superb but it is quite nice, and the set consists of the following six coins, all graded by NGC: Sixpence S-3813 PR64, Shilling S-3810 PR64, Halfcrown S-3807 PR62, Crown SECUNDO edge S-3805 PR64, Half Sovereign S-3802 PR63, and Sovereign S-3800 PR64. The silver is medium gray with bluish tints. The gold shows moderate cameos and old-time color. The plush case is broken at the hinges but otherwise is in remarkably fine condition, showing great care taken for it over the nearly 200 years since it was issued. This is truly an unusual opportunity to obtain, intact, one of the rarest British Proof sets. Mintage was very small but the exact number struck is not recorded. (Total: 6 coins)
From the Osage Collection.
