    1783 Chalmers Sixpence, XF40
    W-1770, Large Date

    1783 6PENCE Chalmers Sixpence, Large Date XF40 PCGS. Breen-1014, W-1770, R.6. There are four varieties of Chalmers sixpence listed in the Whitman Encyclopedia of Colonial and Early American Coins, and these varieties rank among the hardest of all colonial American coins to properly attribute. Examination of the various listing in the Whitman Encyclopedia and Walter Breen's Complete Encyclopedia suggest that one of the varieties may not exist. Differentiating the Small Date and Large Date dies provides a significant challenge. As is often the case, this pleasing Chalmers sixpence is unevenly struck with weak details at the lower obverse and left side of the reverse. A few old scratches are blended with the surrounding surfaces that exhibit trivial handling marks. A trace of mint luster remains. Listed on page 53 of the 2020 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 40, 2 finer (4/19). (NGC ID# 2AUS, PCGS# 594)
