Pleasing Choice VF 1783 Chalmers Long Worm Shilling
1783 SHLNG Chalmers Shilling, Long Worm VF35 PCGS. Breen-1012. A second and finer example of the scarce Long Worm Chalmers shilling. The iconography of these pieces shows two doves squabbling over a worm with a snake lurking behind the nearby hedge. According to Breen, this is a message against centralized government and can be read: "While you states go on squabbling over trivialities [boundary disputes?], you don't notice what is coming over to devour you!" This is an exceptionally pleasing coin that presents finer than the stated grade. The fields and recessed areas of the design are deep gray, while the devices show sharply contrasting pale reddish patina. The only mark of note is an old scratch below the clasped hands on the reverse. (PCGS# 595)
