    (1659) Lord Baltimore Sixpence, Choice XF
    Small Bust, Hodder 2-C, W-1060

    (1659) 6PENCE Lord Baltimore Sixpence XF45 PCGS. Hodder 2-C, W-1060, R.5. London's Tower Mint produced coins in four denominations for Cecil Calvert when prices for Maryland commodities began to soar in the mid-to-late 1650s. The Clerke of the Irons in the Tower -- who was also holder of a Puritan Commonwealth commission against false coiners -- obtained a warrant for Calvert's arrest, and seized his coins and tools. Calvert's right to coin money for use in the colony was eventually upheld, while his coinage circulated in small quantities, without appreciably improving the monetary situation in Maryland. This Choice XF example displays silver-gray color with traces of deep-charcoal build-up in sheltered areas. A minor planchet flaw exists at 9 o'clock on the reverse border. Listed on page 42 of the 2021 Guide Book.
