    Description

    Dramatically Toned Gold 'Tickey'
    Famously Commissioned by Sammy Marks

    Republic gold Pattern "Tickey" 3 Pence 1898 MS63 PCGS, KM-PnA23, Hern-ZP5. Plain edge. A most-impressive representative of this storied rarity, sheathed in captivating patina over both sides, with apricot color brightening the fields and yellow tone highlighting the centers. Commensurate with most low-mintage presentation pieces, the strike is complete and the fields display highly reflective luster, an attribute that not only enchants the eye with its dazzling quality, but also elevates the vibrancy of the overlying tone. Light past handling defines the assigned grade, but no individual instance of contact requires attention; in fact, while we've sold finer graded examples in the past, this example, in our opinion, surpasses them all due to its dynamic character. A truly wonderful coin, befitting the finest South African cabinet, and certain to thrill its next owner one view after the other.
