If that cost more than any other sixpence in the world, I will never respect Brian again!

There have been three editions of the sixpence.

One produced as merchandise for the BTTL tour in 1993, one as above for the Vegas WWRY production, & another for the QPR tour 2005.

The last two are not (yet) valuable. The first one is.
