    1783 Chalmers Shilling, Fine 15
    Short Worm, W-1785

    1783 SHILNG Chalmers Shilling, Short Worm Fine 15 PCGS. Breen-1011, W-1785, High R.4. Three varieties exist for the 1783 Chalmers shilling, this one showing a Short Worm with the fence below between letters N and N. Chalmers was an Annapolis, Maryland silversmith who issued his own coinage in an attempt to curb the amount of low-grade Spanish silver in circulation. This piece saw obvious use, though outlines of the design elements remain intact. Struck slightly off-center toward 3 o'clock on the obverse. Listed on page 53 of the 2020 Guide Book.
    From The Poulos Family Collection, Part II.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AUU, PCGS# 596)
