Great Britain 1887 Sixpence EF

A coin to assist in the understanding of the Proof-like PCGS designation. PCGS has this to say:

  • Prooflike (PL) – PCGS designates Prooflike for coins that grade MS60 or better and show clear reflectivity, i.e. mirrored surfaces at a distance of two to four inches. If the cartwheel effect or striations cause an area to lose clarity, the designation will not apply.

So for collectors wanting to target collectable coins with a potentially profitable PL designation, this Great Britain 1887 Sixpence is useful as a guide to understanding PCGS requirements. Also available is a PCGS graded PL66 fourpence. Click on the link below:
