    George VI Lot of Four Certified Proof Coins 1951-PL,
    1/2 Penny PR64 Red and Brown PCGS
    Penny PR64 Red and Brown PCGS
    3 Pence PR66 PCGS
    6 Pence PR64 PCGS

    London mint, KM42-45. A truly outstanding lot of conditionally-rare Proof coins from the penultimate year of George VI's reign. Starting with the 1/2 Penny denomination, this bronze beauty features a striated pattern of cinnamon and mahogany patina with underlying coppery iridescence that shows-off the coin's reflective properties. The Penny in this group is perhaps the most understated, with a combination of purplish and amber color that dapples the surfaces somewhat evenly in dramatic fashion. In studying the reverse under magnification, the presence of what appears to be a small eyelash exists just to the left of the Kangaroo's arm. Continuing on to the silver denominations, the 3 Pence offers fully-glossy surfaces from start to finish, with just a hint of champagne color lining the outer peripheries and two, minuscule obverse milk spots that most likely keep this selection from an even finer designation. Finally, the 6 Pence expresses subtly-toned surfaces that absolutely sparkle from every angle; a portrait that has just a hint of rub; and similar to its smaller counterpart, two minor milk spots that reside upon the obverse. While each coins is impressive individually, as a whole this lot is absolutely scarce and quite possibly unique.
