    Rare Original Strike Mohur

    British India. William IV gold Mohur 1835-(c) MS63 NGC, Calcutta mint, KM451.2, Prid-9, S&W-1.9. "R.S." incuse on truncation. Extremely rare as an original currency strike; the majority of 1835 Mohurs on the market are Proof restrikes, still very popular with collectors. The present piece exhibits a charming reflectivity in the fields, William's portrait sharply defined with few contact marks and absolutely no hint of circulation wear. This specimen is tied for the finest certified by NGC - the other MS63 example sold in January 2015 for a hammer price of $28,000. We do not doubt that the rarity of this piece combined with its exceptional quality will see it elicit similar bidder attention.

    Estimate: $15,000 - $20,000.
