A Maundy set - incomplete as the 1 pence coin is missing. 1904 Edward VII - available for £100. Old original box, not in great condition. The coins have routine wear & tear not in the best condition.
Should I go for it???
what would you do
I would rather buy a complete set. Getting the missing coin in the same condition as the original three coins will be difficult, thus making it obvious that it is not a set.

Question?
Did you bid for the Maundy set. Just out of pure interest and curiosity

It was at a local market stall.
Did you buy it?

Quote: "COINMAN1"​Did you buy it?
I haven't bought them yet.
Was keen to find out what others thought.
I bought a 2d 3d 4d from 1902 for 20 quid a couple of years back. I was at an antique market a few weeks ago and a stall had a few coins. Among them was a 1902 maundy 1d! £15.

I would see if there is any room for negotiation on the price as £100 for 3/4 of a set (missing the hardest of the set to replace seems pretty top end of the price scale.
No. The 1902 set is one of the most readily available. Don't buy maundy sets in poor condition unless they are very rare
All good suggestions.
I will try to negotiate a better price armed with information that 1902 is easily available.
Went to my local coin shop today, for the first time in many months. He had 5 Maundy sets for sale. Dated from the late 1770's to early 1900's.
Prices started at £130.00 up to nearly £300.00. All in boxes except one set and all looked pretty decent

Which dates? I may be interested if you don't mind checking!
I will email him to get exact dates and prices.

Hey coinman,

thanks for checking up on those!

Id like some pictures of the 1829 please. Modern box is a shame but I can live with it if these are EF! Alternatively I may be happy to buy blind if you trust the guys grading and return retrospectively if they are terrible.

also interested in taking a look at 1914, and potentially 1904!

many thanks again!
Ps. blue hawk that 1902 set is worth it. You can probably buy an original case for 20 or so after some searching
oggy,
I will request photographs of the 1829, 1904 & 1914 sets

More photographs, plus price changes. Please read


I have a couple of price adjustments to mention please Geoff.
The 1904 set has a few minor edge knocks so £99.
The 1829 set has a small edge knock on the 4d which I
hadn't noticed so i'd say £140 for that set.







Thats it I think.

Let me know if anyone wants any of these sets, and I will get them removed from the sale window and reserved for you. First come, and its gone

I recently bought a single 1D Maundy 1834 for 22,50 eur.
(And I am really happy with it, even if it's just one coin out of a set)

To be honest, I feel it's a "buy if you like it" type of deal.
If you like to get them, get them. If you are not sure, then just don't.
I have my own set, dated 1909, which I bought many years ago, so a lot cheaper than they are today. Mine are in a square red box.
I have seen some of the sets the dealer but is selling, and they look pretty impressive.

Really appreciate your prompt help.
I am going to hold off buying for a while.
With a heavy heart I have to say no.
I am not disagreeing with anyone's choices to buy or leave for now. I am sure they will always be sets to buy somewhere or other.
Wishing everyone a very happy search for whatever they want, whenever they want it.
