KM#7311, Great Britain 1842 4 Pence Proof, Victoria Young Head.
An extremely rare Proof of record, produced to an exceptionally high standard. Surely deserving of a ‘cameo’ designation, this piece exhibits an icy white Proof sheen turning matte as it flows across Wyon’s portrait of young Victoria, remaining flashy in the fields and giving the much-loved contrast. The peripheries have toned a light golden brown, framing the gleaming centers effectively and adding to the eye appeal.
Scarcely ever encountered at auction, this piece would make a superb addition to any collection of British Proofs.
