    (1659) Lord Baltimore Sixpence, VF35
    Small Bust, W-1060
    Elusive Early Silver Type

    (1659) 6PENCE Lord Baltimore Sixpence, Small Bust, VF35 PCGS. H. 2-C, W-1060, R.5. The Maryland silver coinage was contemporaneous with its Massachusetts counterpart, but is much scarcer, since it was struck in smaller numbers circa 1659. The coins were struck at the Tower Mint in London and exported to America. Demand from early American type collectors makes problem-free examples highly desirable. The present Choice VF sixpence has silver-blue fields and stone-gray high points. The borders display hints of russet toning. The evenly worn surfaces are unblemished and attractive. Listed on page 42 of the 2021 Guide Book.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2U3K, PCGS# 33)
