Description

Choice XF Short Worm Chalmers Shilling

1783 SHLNG Chalmers Shilling, Short Worm XF45 NGC. Breen-1011, Crosby Pl. IX, 5. The hedge or fence is centered between two N's in the obverse legend, a useful method of distinguishing the Short Worm from its slightly rarer Long Worm counterpart. Annapolis, Maryland silversmith John Chalmers briefly struck various denominations of silver coins in 1783 to help rid the area of worn-out Spanish colonial currency. This tan-cream example has glimmers of luster along the borders and moderate wear on the central devices. Nicely centered and free from blemish. Listed on page 49 of the 2009 Guide Book. Census: 1 in 45, 3 finer (6/08). (NGC ID# 2AUU, PCGS# 596)
