Description:
AU53 Short Worm 1783 Chalmers Shilling
1783 SHLNG Chalmers Shilling, Short Worm AU53 PCGS. Crosby Pl. IX, 5, Breen-1011. 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. John Chalmers was a silversmith from Annapolis, Maryland. He produced a series of rare silver issues to reduce the number of cut and worn-out Spanish colonial pieces in local circulation. The unusual motif of two birds sharing (or contesting) a worm (or branch, or snake) is open to interpretation, but probably refers to the then-new Federal constitution. 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. (PCGS# 596)
