    Lord Baltimore Sixpence, VF Details
    Small Bust, W-1060

    (1659) 6PENCE Lord Baltimore Sixpence -- Obverse Damage -- NGC Details. VF. Hodder 2-C, W-1060, R.5. The Tower Mint in London struck four denominations of coinage for Maryland during 1659. The issues all featured the bust of Cecil Calvert, the second Lord Baltimore and effective owner of the colony. All Maryland coinage is rare today. This example has a straight diagonal mark above Calvert's eye, though the cream-gray and lilac surfaces are otherwise problem-free. The peripheral legends are crisp, as is the shield. Calvert's hair displays wear consistent with the grade. Listed on page 42 of the 2021 Guide Book.
