1872 6d Victoria Rare date silver Sixpence in a very nice grade. DN:73

Interestingly high die number, for those who enjoy die number studies.  In the 1992 edition of ESC, the highest die number for this date is recorded as 62.  Davies records 73, and the new edition of ESC states 74.  

Nice strong strike and a beautiful texture to this coin.  It's a little darker than the photo suggests.  

Rare date in ESC regardless
