Australia 1879S Half Sovereign PCGS F12
While other dealers and Ebay sellers won’t go to the trouble of sending such a low grade coin to PCGS, I believe it’s worth our while as collectors to bring such coins out of the margins into mainstream PCGS graded collections.
Despite the low grade, it is one of only 7 coins available. I will continue to source and provide collectors further PCGS graded coins of this level as they become available.
