This specimen was part of lot 27639 in Heritage sale 3022 (New York, January 2013), which sold for $558.13. The catalog description[1] noted, "Anne to George II silver coins, various types, average grade VF and toned." This type is listed for 1746-51 and 1758 and is fairly common in worn condition. The mint did not produce near enough small change for the industrial boom of the eighteenth century, leading to a proliferation of private tokens. The situation would not be rectified until the reform of 1817.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 6.02 g, .925 fine silver.

Catalog reference: S-3704, ESC-1208, KM 583.3.
