George IV 4d

Recommended Posts

Hello folks.

Please can I have opinions on these maundy 4d. I'm posting on behalf of someone else so not my coins.

Please find attached obverse pictures for 1825 and 1829.

On the 1825 there's a large gap between F and D (there is a stop, although not evident in picture) and also a stop between Brittanniar and Rex, which isn't there on the 1829. I've checked Davies and no mention of anything. Is this an unlisted variety or a fake?

Many thanks in advance.

First is 1829, second is 1825.

I'd imagine the stop in the die got filled with crud. Both look real enough to me.

Ok great thanks Chris. Appreciate a second opinion, I think you're probably right.
