Australia 1873 Melbourne Half Sovereign PCGS AU55
Type 3/3 obverse/reverse (the only type for this mint date). As McDonald records in the 23rd edition, the hand cut nature of the dies led to myriad differences. This has led to five recognized obverse varieties and four different shield reverses.
Only two coins are graded at this extremely fine level. Only 1 example is superior, therefore a rare, graded example from PCGS.
