    (1659) Lord Baltimore Sixpence, XF45
    Small Bust, Hodder 2-C

    (1659) 6PENCE Maryland Lord Baltimore Sixpence XF45 PCGS. Small Bust, Hodder 2-C, W-1060, R.5. Die alignment: 180°. No stop after MVLTIPLICAMINI. The obverse shows light circulation, mostly observable over the high points of Cecil Calvert's hair. The strike is uneven, with the initial letters of MARIÆ being faint and the features of Calvert's face being soft. A few hairlines are discernible, with a light scratch below his eye being the most noticeable. The reverse is generally bold, though with the same softness of strike found toward the left center of the coin, with the V of the denomination being weak. An old scratch extending from the left of the crown to the rim is noted. Both sides are a pleasing silver-gray, with slightly darker toning in some of the protected areas of the legends and devices. Rather well-centered for the issue. There are traces of a misplaced M punched between the C and A of MVLTIPLICAMINI, which is a diagnostic for this die. A fine selection for the Colonial collector building a mid-range type set. Listed on page 42 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    From The Julian Kaufman Collection.
