    Sommer Islands Sixpence, VF Details
    Large Portholes, W-11445
    Rare Hogge Money Denomination

    (1615-16) 6PENCE Sommer Islands Sixpence, Large Portholes -- Damaged -- NGC Details. VF. Breen-3, W-11445, R.6. Like all Sommers Islands "hogge money," the sixpence is very rare. Our online auction archives, which date to 1993, show only two prior auction appearances of the denomination at Heritage. All examples were recovered from soil at Bermuda and typically have dark, granular surfaces. The present piece is sharply defined and displays a clear hog, ship, and denomination. All four large portholes are readily evident. Abrasions are minimal and the "damage" designated on the NGC holder is strictly from environmental exposure. Listed on page 36 of the 2015 Guide Book.
