    A coin graded EF+ thirty years ago may be considered to be valued as a commercial uncirculated today.

    The current edition of Spink Coins of England & The United Kingdon says 975 pounds and up for this coin, but that means almost nothing until the coin can be inspected by a professional.

    Ah,that coin if MS63 is going to be worth a lot more than 975 - I saw where one sold at London Coin Auctions for 1400 pounds and it was only "about Fine".

    Love that Milled British (1830-1960)
    Well, just Love coins, period.

    If 'London Coin Auctions' is the same eBay dealer that I am thinking of, their asking prices are toppy. Perhaps we are thinking of different dealers.

    I simply took the lowest price that Spink printed.

    My experience on these UFO coins is that they tend to come in at a lower condition than one hopes for, and that many have "details" issues. That is, IF IF IF one ever sees them at all.

    That sounds like a great coin.... if in good condition, it is a real treasure. Cheers, RickO
