AU53 Short Worm 1783 Chalmers Shilling
1783 SHLNG Chalmers Shilling, Short Worm AU53 PCGS.
Breen-1011, Crosby Pl. IX, 5. The hedge or fence is centered
between two N's in the obverse legend, a handy diagnostic to
distinguish the Short Worm from its slightly more rare Long Worm
counterpart. The significance of the Chalmers silver is that nearly
all American private coinage during this era was in base metal.
John Chalmers, an Annapolis, Maryland silversmith, provided an
exception, as did Standish Barry, who struck an extremely rare
threepence in 1790. This deep steel-gray example has consistently
clear legends and types. Mildly granular near the S in CHALMERS,
and wispy, inconspicuous marks are present near the clasped hands.
Listed on page 49 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 1 in
53, 1 finer (4/08).
