    Choice-Certified Victoria Restrike Set

    British India. Victoria 4-Piece Certified gold Proof Restrike Set 1854-(c) NGC,

    2) 10 Rupees - PR63, KM-Pn19, S&W-3.21

    Calcutta mint. A fabulous quartet of restrike Proofs, absolutely dazzling from the very first glance. Far more coveted than their silver counterparts, these pieces boast uniform brightness and lemon-gold color, minimal tone detracting from the 'as-made' appearance to their surfaces. Unusually for such a set, the grades increase with denomination: the 5 and 10 Rupees both premium for their certification with only minor contact marks detracting (the 5 with a notable die crack at 1 o'clock). The Mohur and Double Mohur are finer still with scarcely any hairlines and supreme sharpness to Victoria's young portrait. Sets such as this appear very infrequently at auction and always attract considerable interest when they do. We do not doubt that the superlative certification, strong eye appeal and extreme scarcity of this 4-piece Proof set will land it a premium bid and a place within an elite British India collection.




    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.
