Australia 1887 Sydney Half Sovereign – PCGS AU58
- S-3871 Spread JEB
Harshly graded – would look mint UNC out of the box. However, it is far below the uhoice uncirculated grade being claimed by the auction house it was purchased form with $5000 previous price tag. It’s why Top End Coins is devoted to selling PCGS graded coins. From a mintage of 100,000 coins – not a key date, but not an easy date to acquire.
This is the common variety of this date. The ‘close JEB’ initials is the scarce variety.
