    British India. Madras Presidency Proof 1/48 Rupee 1797 PR66 Brown NGC, KM398. Absolutely exemplary, this gorgeous Proof issue stuns by its masterful complexity and presentation of color and detail. The surfaces reveal what one could well call a reverse cameo contrast, whereby the devices, darker than the surrounding fields, stand definitively blued against the red-brown backdrop, which is exceedingly glossy and nearly free of handling. In the legends, original red luster brightens the overall appearance, putting the crowning visual touch on this jewel of Indian numismatics.
