    Description

    Ultra Cameo-Graded 1835 Proof Restrike 2 Mohurs

    British India. William IV gold Proof Restrike 2 Mohurs 1835.-(c) PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC, Calcutta mint, KM452.1, Fr-1592b, Prid-3, S&W-1.4. Reeded edge. Exceedingly rare as a type not only in Gem Proof status, but all the more so with a recognized Ultra/Deep Cameo contrast--this being the joint finest of just 6 pieces to receive that designation from NGC, with none yet certified as such by PCGS. The surfaces appear as nearly jet-black mirrors from every angle, followed closely by an indelible, lavish and yet slightly subdued frost over the raised elements. Accordingly to our research, only a handful of other specimens that have either been certified or seem as though they could contend for cameo status have come to auction in recent years, with perhaps only the David Fore specimen, sold raw in 2013, being able to compete with this example.

    Estimate: $100,000 - $150,000.
