    Evenly Struck XF45 Lord Baltimore Sixpence

    (1659) 6PENCE Lord Baltimore Sixpence XF45 PCGS. Breen-68, Crosby Pl. III, 2. A lovely slate-gray example with dashes of russet across protected areas of the peripheral legends. The portrait is richly detailed, unlike many pieces seen with an indifferent strike on Cecil Calvert, the second Lord Baltimore. Although a couple of degrees off center toward 9 o'clock, the legends are fully intact. Careful evaluation beneath a loupe fails to locate distracting marks.
    The Maryland fourpence, sixpence, and shilling were contemporaneous with the silver coinage in the nearby Massachusetts colony, but are much more rare, since the Maryland pieces were struck only briefly. These were produced at the Royal Mint in London, and exported to Maryland. Listed on page 38 of the 2007 Guide Book.
    From The Troy Wiseman Collection, Part Two.
