Could I get some opinions on grade and value? Thank you!

Wow triple rotated clashes. And a broke up die about the A. Very interesting coin. EF40 cleaned in my opinion.

aEF in my opinion. Possibly cleaned but hard to say from the photos.
Nice coin anyway - pre-1870s British silver isn't usually this well preserved.

As to value - difficult to be precise. I can see one much worse recently sold for 34, and another in similar grade which was listed at 395 but accepted an offer less than that - we can't see what. My gut feel would be around the 100 mark.
Pity it is not 1850 - that is a key date and would make a lot more.

If I understand correctly, collectors in Europe are not into error coins nearly as much a North American collectors.
That would hold the value down from "across the pond".
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Cleaned NVF\VF die cracks mean nothing to English collectors as a general rule. The coinage of the era is full of them so it is just a normal process of the minting and die wear. Over dates and wrong letters re-punched with correct letters are sought after and many have huge premiums 35-50 ;)
