Australia 1880 Sydney Half Sovereign – About Extremely Fine

This coin may grade with PCGS, but I won’t add $70 to the price finding out. The scratch on the neck is the only thing marring this very attractive example of a scarce date – just over 70,000 minted. The rare type 3 reverse makes up the rest of the 80K mintage for this date.
