This one is a scarce date in Victoria empress quarter anna, having a mintage of about 12 million. copper oxidizes very easily so its tough to get a UNC copper, especially in Victoria. And thats the reason why item like the one shown above can be pricey.

The Victoria half anna was minted in 1862,1875,1876 and finally in 1877. The Victoria empress half anna was minted only in 1877 and is scarce, especially in good condition. For the ignorant, not knowing is bliss as one would think that a copper item cannot have high value. But these are now worth a significant sum, and are not easy to get by any means.
