    Rare "Crosslet 4" Variety

    British India. East India Company - Victoria gold Mohur 1841.-(c) MS62 NGC, Calcutta mint, KM462.2, Prid-22, S&W-3.11 (Rare). Type B/1. "W.W." Crosslet 4. Regarded as the rarest variety for the split legend type, with the obvious addition of a "spike" that punctuates the intersecting lines of the 4 in the date. Among the nicest we have encountered, the present piece showcases attractive luster and a highly detailed strike. Astonishingly few eye-catching marks are seen and the result is a stunningly balanced appearance for the grade. Ideal as a coin for the impassioned collector, as this example certainly holds attributes that will continue to please one viewing after the other.

    Note for clients in the European Union: This lot is considered by the European Union to be “investment gold”. We believe that it meets the criteria established in Article 344(1), point (2) of Council Directive 2006/112/EC and thus should be exempt from import VAT regardless of the selling price. Any questions or concerns about VAT should be addressed to your accountant or local tax authority.
