Danish West Indies. 1757 12 skilling. Fine.

SOLD

Details

Danish West Indies. 1757 12 skilling. Fine. Evenly toned olive-gray, a worn and somewhat crusty specimen that saw significant circulation. Some marks are seen, including two little rim nicks near 1:00 on the obverse and a shallow scratch from 9:00 to near central reverse. This type saw circulation in early America (as I detailed in a recent Coin World column), turning up in the ground both hole and cut in half for small change. Though struck on the Danish system for circulation in what is now known as the U.S. Virgin Islands, this would have circulated as equal to a Spanish real anywhere it would have gone. High grade pieces are very rare, making a pleasing if circulated piece like this ideal for many collectors.
