The reverse is lovely but the obverse has some wear. On this basis I would put it at MS63+

However it looks to have some nice lustre which the graders like so it might be upped a little on this basis.

PCGS would probably grade it higher than NGC.

The 6 in the date looks a bit dodgy.

yes it is a little strange, but that is not unusual on sovs around the 50's and early 60's

There is a substantial die crack going through the 6 as well.

Hi guys 

 

The coin is graded MS63 from PCGS. My opinion is that the coin is MS64 minimum because of the fantastic luster it has and the details. 

The wear on the hair is not an actual wear but a die wear if you understand what i mean. Its the same as sovereigns issued in 40's.

For that to happen there would have to be something "filling in" the cavity in the die surface.

Do you have a reference that explains this?

The hair on the "bun" is not showing the same wear but i think that is not as high on the releif as the main hair above the ear.

Sideburn? This is the Queen we are talking about, not Albert😁

Anyway, I think I have a 1863 PCGS MS63 that has the same hair but probably hasn't as good a lustre. I'll see if I can find a photo.

It's quite funny to see the opinions on grading in this thread, I laughed so hard at the AU55 and MS66 guesses 🤣
