Notes:
Like the 1943 'S' Sixpence, most 1943 'S' threepences were struck on planchets that produced coins with reflective surfaces. The resulting coins were more susceptible to hairline scratches and scuffs, so although it is not difficult to find uncirculated examples of 1943 'S' threepences and sixpences it is much harder to find them in high grade.
