British Maundy Set's at DNW Sale
June 19, 2008

Several British Maundy Set's Closing Tomorrow at DNW

Today, Dix Noonan Webb's auction 78 will be crossing the block with lots of interesting lots. Of particular note to me were several nice Maundy sets including two from 1679, a William and Mary set from 1689, two Queen Anne sets from 1708 and 1709, a George I set from 1727 the year of his death, a George III set from 1795 and a George IV set dated 1824. I would expect that several of these will garner serious attention, as Maundy sets have been very popular of late. Prices have risen, especially on the tougher dates and earlier sets. The William and Mary set is a nice opportunity and should bring a tidy sum.

Also in this sale are a number of excellent British patterns from all eras. I was particularly taken with lots 412 and 413, a pair of striking William Wyon Florin patterns for Queen Victoria. DNW is also offering several George III pattern halfpenny pieces, a few rare Queen Anne farthing patterns, and a few others here and there as well, including a rare Pinches private pattern crown.

Later this afternoon, I'll post about some of the British Colonial coins in DNW's auction 78.
