Description

Charles II (1660-85), Shilling, third hammered issue (1660-62), with inner circles and large mark of value, crowned bust left, mintmark crown both sides, legend surrounds CAROLVS II DG MAG BRI FRA ET HIB REX. Rev, long cross fourchée over quartered shield of arms, reads CHRISTO AVSPICE REGNO, 5.93g (S.3322; N.2764; Bull.309; ESC 1019: R).

Set out on a marginally ragged flan with some edge flaws, a pleasant mixture of dark and light toning, some nicks and scratches, one infiltrating the Kings profile. Legends generally legible with some wear to some of obverse letter puncheons, portrait comprehensive when held to good light, reverse pleasing. About very fine for issue, recorded in English Silver coinage as rare.

Ex Steve Beach, bought 1981
