Lot Description
1783 6PENCE Chalmers Sixpence, Small Date -- Plugged -- NGC Details. VF. Breen-1015, W-1775, High R.6. Ex: Ted L. Craig Collection. Annapolis, Maryland silversmith John Chalmers issued a series of silver tokens in 1783 to replace worn-out Spanish-American coinage. All Chalmers varieties are rare, though the shillings are encountered much more often than the other denominations. The sixpence varieties span from very rare to uncollectible. Due to its sharpness on half the obverse and a majority of the reverse, the present piece is of considerable importance. A hole is plugged and tooled effacing the CHA in CHALMERS and the reverse shows uneven wear. Listed on page 51 of the 2014 Guide Book.
