I think I unburried some nice six pences that will go out eventually for grading. I've gotten to know these coins fairly well now and have learned a few things about the design. On the bird, complete tail feathers are a sign of a good strike, and will as leg scales. There is a cut in the design which is part of the tail feather colors. On most coins it looks almost like hits on the coin. That turns out to be wrong. Also special attention needs to be paid to the ear of the Monarch, especially King George VI

This is an extrodanarily nice 1943 which is very clean until high magnification




The obverse shows some slight flatness on the upper shoulder and the tail design doesn't do straight through to all the feathers, but all the feathers are sperated and distinct. I think that is the die or the strike because there are some obverse die cracks over the beak, down the tail, nea the X, over the A

This 1943 has a few more hits on it, and maybe not MS? It might benifit from an acetone wash. Its tail feathers are struck better but have chatter. It is not full tail feathers, although it has more of the deisgn imprinted on the coin that the one above. The portrait of George VI is overall flat.

No pictures for me unfortunately, but would like to help with the grade. I agree with your perceptive comments.
Aussie sixpences are as familiar to me as dimes are to Americans.

This 1936 has Goerge the V with the big full beard. It is an entertaining obverse. It is a very nice strike and clean. The upper shoulder of the bird is very nice but the tail feather design is virtually missing and there is a hint of leg scales. There are a few hits in Georges ear. I lot the bid on a recent NZ 1933, I believe, of this design that had a fantastic strike and was exceptionally clean. I hope I find another one soon.



there are also details on the protraits colar that are just not in this coin.

Here is a 1936 that probably has some genuine circulation wear on it, but it is still very pleasing

I see the pics fine. It's probably a browser issue for those who can't.

Yes, that works but it's strange that you have to go down that track. This is what I'm seeing ... something's definitely amiss!

I know jbuck has addressed this before. I believe there is a browser security setting you can change that will allow the images to load. I use DuckDuckGo and it works fine.

I can see them well! The coins are not bad. My grades for them.

1943 - 1st coin - high VF (The obverse on these coins is very sharp from VF due to the high rim and recessed fields, grading above VF usually focuses on the monarch and this coin has flattening on the cheek, hair above crown and eyebrow. It's almost EF, but a wee bit flat.

1936 - 1st coin, mid VF - the pearls surrounding the middle jewel in the crown band are merged (An EF coin would show them clearly separated). This is an attractive coin for a scarce date though!

1936 - 2nd coin, highest fine/aVF - here the central diamond is flat and some of the crown band is merged with it. By now there is light wear on the huia too.

But most NZ silver of this era is heavily worn and these coins are well above average!! They are collectible and nice coins!

1943 - 2nd coin - bare VF - George is much flatter, but again the Huia (The bird on the coin) is nice and sharp.

(PS: I grade British style and grade quite hard, so VF = XF American style)
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Here is the same coins in EF and AU grade, Truly UNC George V coins of NZ are extremely expensive (high $000s)




And a virtually UNC 1944! Coin on right, left coin is EF/EF+




Typical condition on the other hand!



Standard Kiwi melt silver in Good or VG condition, the Kings are basically flat or have limited detail and a gungy green/gray colour due to half copper mix!
