George VI, Brass Threepence, 1948
Many of the King George VI dates of brass threepences are Scarce and difficult to find, as most of the mintage was sent to our colonies overseas. The 1948 Brass Threepence is no exception. I believe that most of them went to the West Indies; after all even during a war the population needs coins to spend.
The brass threepence while a short series (1937-1967) is also one of our most popular series.
The new pound coin is based on this coin. The 1948 brass threepences are in Fine condition and difficult to find, many date collectors are missing this coin.
