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

    Wow.

    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.
