Charles I, 1625-1649, Worcester Silver Shilling (1643-44)
S-3113, N-2619, 5.57 grams, 30mm. Provincial and Civil war issue (1638-49), Weymouth Mint (1643-44), a somewhat crude copy of the final variety, crowned bust left, adequately rendered, XII in field behind, CAROLVS D G. MA. BR. FR. ET. HI REX:, reverse: CHRISTO AVSPICE REGNO, oval garnished shield. Struck on an irregular planchet, some peripheral detail is missing due to striking and clipping, more so on the reverse. Deep argent-gray with charcoal accents in the recesses of the design, several ancient marks and scratches are noted on each side. Extremely rare!
