    A very nice coin, that looks to have been dipped, and possibly a VERY light wipe but quite presentable and RARE.

    Think it would straight grade?

    Is that a little pin scratch in front of Vickie's nose?

    Regardless, it looks like choice AU+ details to me, and a tough coin!

    Yes, that is a die scratch or defect that because of the smaller size didn't even notice at first!. In hand, think the coin likely a "2" or so, no real wear and the light wisps of ?hairlines prob. accentuated in photos & have seen "3"s with a lot more. I guess if it was lite side it would get a push for rarity.

    In mint state, Vicky 6ds, the rarity scale IMO would read:

    1893>1854=1878 Dritanniar>1848 (collectively all the overdates)
    Basically, none of these are available almost ever.

    Yes indeed, but it was the rarity and particularly the preservation of this coin that is remarkable. Considerable searching will likely not yield another...
