    Choice Colonial Issue

    1783 Chalmers Shilling PCGS XF45 (Short Worm)

    Elite Items

    One of the best-struck examples of this popular Maryland colonial that we've ever seen. Some very light pockmarks are noticeable around 11 o'clock on the obverse and 4 o'clock on the reverse. However, the strike and quality of the surfaces still far exceed most XF or even AU examples of this collectible piece.

    Rare Colonial America Issue

    1776 Continental Dollar $1 PCGS VG-10 (CURENCY, Pewter)


    A fascinating issue as the origin of these issues is not clear, except that it was likely rooted in the desire of the Continental Congress to issue a monetary medium of exchange. Issued in 1776, most of these examples were made of pewter as silver was not affordable to the fledgling government. Likely struck in three different cities, New York City, Philadelphia, and/or Lancaster, PA these are very popular issues due to their association with the Revolutionary War. This more affordable example displays evenly worn surfaces with a few planchet flaws but still represents the grade nicely with clear details.
