Description

VF Short Worm 1783 Chalmers Shilling
W-1785, Elusive Early American Silver Type

1783 SHLNG Chalmers Shilling, Short Worm VF20 NGC. Breen-1011, W-1785, High R.4. A cream-gray example with clear types and legends. Smooth aside from a single small mark atop the A in CHALMERS. John Chalmers was an Annapolis, Maryland, silversmith who coined a series of rare silver issues to help relieve his community of cut and worn-out Spanish colonial pieces. The curious motif of two birds sharing a worm is likely related to the U.S. Constitution implemented that year. Listed on page 49 of the 2012 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2AUU, PCGS# 596)
