1783 Chalmers Short Worm Shilling XF451783 SHLNG Chalmers Shilling, Short Worm XF45 PCGS. Breen-1011, Crosby Pl. IX, 5. Incorrectly designated as a Long Worm variety by PCGS. 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 (or a branch, according to Crosby) is open to interpretation, although the then-new Federal constitution was a major issue of the date. This nicely defined cream-gray piece has a pair of minor peripheral marks, but the overall appearance is smooth. A significant opportunity for the Early American specialist. Listed on page 49 of the 2007 Guide Book.
From The Troy Wiseman Collection, Part Two. (PCGS# 596)
