Click On Pictures To Zoom

A beautiful and choice example of this well known and highly sought after colonial type. This example shows lovely, original, even gray color with nice toning and excellent eye appeal. There is a small planchet defect below the 8 in the date that we point out for identification purposes. The strike is very bold and the coin is perfectly centered, something that is not often found on this scarce coinage. Described in the Picker Sale as “Toned in lovely shades of blue and gray, the coin will make an excellent addition to any collection. Choice Very Fine or better.” A top caliber example destined to be a highlight in a top quality collection.

Chalmers coinage was struck in Annapolis, MD by John Chalmers starting in 1783. This type has for well over a century been searched out by collectors interested in colonial numismatics and, when located, is often in very low grade condition, very weakly struck or with major damage such as holes or scrapes. This is a beautiful example and one of the finest for the type we have ever handled. Far more appealing than almost all that have been on the market in the past 10 years
