Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is incorrect because th is not used as an ending for ordinal numbers with first, second or third at the end. Because 63rd ends with third, we cannot use form
63th. 63rd is the only correct way to write this ordinal number.
Correct spelling, explanation: 63rd is the correct form. There are several suffixes for ordinal numbers: th (the most common), st (for number first), nd (for second), and rd (for third). Since 63 ends with three, thus with third in its ordinal form, rd is the suffix we are going to use – 63rd.
63th is a mistaken form.
Definition of 63rd:
