Sixpence 1820 George IVPatternESC 1653 as the adopted design for 1821 nFDC with a deep tone and much underlying colour, a few minor hairlines barely detract, excessively rare rated R6 by ESC (3 or 4 examples known)
Sixpence 1821 CGS variety 04 BRITANNIAR, the first R having base crossbar and resembling R/B, but from different dies to the recognized R/B (where the first letter is very weak and the B has been punched over the second letter in error) as in this case both letters are fully struck
Sixpence 1821 First R in BRITANNIAR has full lower serifs, giving the appearance of a BBITANNIAR reading, however when this coin is compared to the recognised BBITANNIAR error the second R is not as clearly a pronounced B the base not being as thick, so offered here as a new variety BBITANNIAR error with thin lower base to second B or BRITANNIAR with second R with base crossbar
Sixpence 1821 EF but a scratch across the portrait
