    Extremely Rare 1790 Standish Barry Threepence

    1790 3PENCE Standish Barry Threepence VF20 Holed, Plugged Uncertified. Breen-1019. This is a genuine representative of this rare post-Revolutionary issue by Baltimore silversmith Standish Barry. Breen (1988) notes that most survivors are struck on small planchets with incomplete peripheral definition. Indeed, the present example lacks full borders around both sides, but all letters in the legends are discernible. A little softly struck in the center of the obverse from a buckled die (as is typical of the type), the most significant distraction is the crude plug at the bottom of the obverse. Listed on page 54 of the 2002 Guide Book.
    From the David Bruce Collection.
