The 1872 Sydney has, like the 1871, its own unique design. Theobverse
has two distinct identifiers: the tip of Queen Victoria's nose lines up with the left hand side of the 'T' in VICTORIA,
and the 'I' of DEI lines up with the crown of her head.
Ttip of nose lines up with 'T', and 'I' lines up with crown of head.
The reverse can be differentiated from the 1871 by the cross on top of the crown, which touches the rims.
Top of the cross touches the rims.
The 1872 Sydney is about as easy to acquire as the 1871 but in top grades it gets significantly scarcer with very few
pieces surviving at AU levels and above.
