    1783 Chalmers Shilling, XF45
    Short Worm, W-1785

    1783 SHILNG Chalmers Shilling, Short Worm, Breen-1011, W-1785, R.4, XF45 NGC. Die alignment: 45°. Slate gray fields and bright silver highlights in the protected areas give this Chalmers shilling strong eye appeal. This piece is of above-average strike, with consistently bold design elements and lettering. A touch off-center, as are many Chalmers coins, most notably toward 4 o'clock on the reverse. Most examples of the Chalmers coinage show evidence of having been widely accepted in circulation. While the number struck must have been significant, all of the varieties and denominations are scarce, if not rare, today. Only three are graded finer by NGC (7/17). Listed on page 53 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
