    1783 Chalmers Shilling, VF20
    W-1785, Short Worm

    1783 SHILNG Chalmers Shilling, Short Worm VF20 NGC. Breen-1011, W-1785, High R.4. An uneven strike affects the lower left obverse and the left side of the reverse with the opposing points showing excellent design definition. The poor quality of the strike challenges the grading process. Pewter-gray surfaces exhibit splashes of light gray on each side. Although the worm is not visible due to the strike, a heavy die line down from the S in SHILLING identifies this variety. Listed on page 53 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    From The Jamestown Collection, Part II.

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