Great Britain 1646-B 6 pence
This specimen was lot 32924 in Heritage sale 3073 (Chicago, April 2019), where it sold for $660. The catalog description noted, "Charles I "Declaration" 6 Pence 1646 XF40 NGC, Bridgnorth-on-Severn mint, B mm. One of the more coveted mints of Charles' declaration issues, some minimal doubling and a slightly ragged edge hardly obscuring what is in all senses a quite admirable and perfectly centered strike, the declaration formula on the reverse particularly charming with stark relief to the devices and a glint of champagne tone. From the Lake County Collection." Spink attributes this "declaration reverse" type to the Bridgnorth-on-Severn mint whereas the SCWC mentions Lundy.
Recorded mintage: unknown.
