    Description

    1783 Chalmers Shilling, XF Sharpness
    Short Worm, W-1785

    1783 SHILNG Chalmers Shilling, Short Worm -- Plugged -- PCGS Genuine. XF Details. Breen-1011, W-1785, High R.4. The silver coins privately issued by Annapolis, Maryland silversmith John Chalmers were produced in a building at the corner of Fleet and Cornhill streets. Apparently, the coins were well-received and circulated extensively. Many are found well-worn, but not this strongly detailed survivor. The design elements remain bold with slight high-point blending. Deep steel-gray patina blankets each side. The faint outline of a plug appears just right of the 3 in the date, but it is not overly offensive.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
