While probably the most common date in the series in lower grades, the case is perhaps very different in A state of a coin that shows no signs of circulationmint state. With the highest The number of coins struck of a particular designationmintage in the series, there is no doubt that sorting through a sack of circulated shillings will yield numerous examples of this date but the case in A state of a coin that shows no signs of circulationmint state is often very different. The reason being is that A state of a coin that shows no signs of circulationmint state quantities are generally defined by the notable hoards that turn up. For example, the Vienna hoard brought about many 1944 San Francisco mint shillings (learn more) contributing to their availability, a few A common means of distributing coins where a mint stores coins in paper rolls before distributing them to banksmint rolls of 1941 shillings (learn more) have turned up also, but just what has turned up of the 1943 San Francicso a facility that produces coinsmint shilling?

At the time of writing, the PCGS population chart shows only 6 1943 San Francicso a facility that produces coinsmint shillings (PCGS Population Chart, 2009), that's the lowest of George VI and the 4th lowest of the shilling series as a whole, after the 1915-H (learn more), the 1913 (learn more) and the 1921 Star (learn more). Now of course nobody is going to bother sending circulated examples of this date to PCGS as they're almost as common as sand so it would be more realistic to compare the number of A state of a coin that shows no signs of circulationmint state examples that they've handled, which would put it at equal lowest in the George VI series with the 1942 (learn more), another potentially scarce date.

The 1941 (learn more) and 1944-S (learn more) on the other hand have the highest populations of the series with 30 and 37 respectively (PCGS Population Chart, 2009) demonstrating the influence that notable hoards have on the survival rate in A state of a coin that shows no signs of circulationmint state.

I have only encountered 1 A common means of distributing coins where a bank would roll coins before distributing them to branches or customersbank roll of the 1943 San Francicso shillings, offering 40 A state of a coin that shows no signs of circulationmint state examples which would probably range from MS62 to MS64 if slabbed and so while the 1943 San Francicso a facility that produces coinsmint Shilling probably isn't scarcer than the 1940, it is certainly an underrated date of the series and one should not underestimate how difficult they are to acquire, especially if sought in the higher A state of a coin that shows no signs of circulationmint state grades.
