WORLD COINS, Virgin Islands – Tortola, Issues c. 1802-05, Half-Dollar, a cut half-segment of a Charles IIII, 8 Réales, [17]96fm, Mexico City, obv. countermarked tirtila raised within a shaped indent, 13.82g/213.3gr (Prid. 8 [Sale, lot 189]; Pridmore, SNC September 1974, type II). Coin about fine, countermark nearly very fine £200-300


Provenance: SCMB November 1975 (W 259).

Note the two edge nicks near the cut edge of this full weight segment; it would appear that this segment was to have been cut down (probably by the person who applied the type II countermark) and for some reason this action was not followed through
