True Currency 1863 Threepence in MS63
This is a great rarity in condition and NOT one of the usual Maundy specimens, which can come in either PL or satin formats....
Some of the currency 3ds are exceptionally rare; many that have been thought of or even slabbed as "Unc." are Maundy issues, with the common misconception that Maundy come only in Prooflike format; this is not true as there are Satin surface Maundy strikes and these have been slabbed as currency.
The collector is advised to consider this as many of the 1839-1848, 1852-4, 1855-63, and perhaps other dates that I have not seen are Maundy 3ds.
By the way, Steve Hill of Sovereign Rarities will support me in this, and have had many discussions with him previously.
Well, just Love coins, period.
