Picked this one up several months ago. Not really what I am collecting, but a neat coin nonetheless.

It is a medal alignment example, much scarcer than the coinage alignment ones. Click on the PCGS photo to enlarge.

I was most attracted to the coin by the scarcity of the medal alignment, but also by the color. Many of the PEI specimens have not aged well and have stains, discolorations, etc. It is a neat coin and I think better than 63, but numerical grades do not matter as much on these.

I was noticing the repunched Q in QUEEN on the obverse, doubled.
Awesome coin.

The T and A in Victoria also look to be recut or repunched. Really nice coin.

The first rule of Victoria's Ts and As is we don't talk about Victoria's Ts and As.
