Choice XF 1783 Chalmers Shilling
1783 SHLNG Chalmers Shilling, Short Worm XF45 PCGS.
Breen-1011, Crosby Pl. IX, 5. Incorrectly designated as a Long Worm
variety by PCGS. John Chalmers was an Annapolis, Maryland
silversmith, who coined a series of rare silver issues to help
relieve his community of cut and worn-out Spanish colonial pieces.
The curious motif of two birds sharing a worm (or a branch,
according to Crosby) is open to interpretation, although the
then-new Federal constitution was a major issue in 1783. This
nicely defined cream-gray piece has a pair of small peripheral
marks, but the overall appearance is smooth. A significant
opportunity for the Early American specialist. Listed on page 49 of
the 2008 Guide Book.
