Virgin Islands - Tortola

WORLD COINS, Virgin Islands – Tortola, Issues c. 1800+, Black Dogg, a counterfeit Cayenne 2 Sous, obv. countermarked with incuse h within an incuse diamond-shaped frame, rev. later countermarked with incuse t, 1.41g/21.7gr (cf. Prid. 7A and 19C [not in Sale]). Coin fair, countermarks better, rare £80-100


Provenance: Part of the Tortola withdrawal hoard, 1889; bt Baldwin 1983.

As the t countermark is over the h this shows that the private issue h stamp predates the official action taken in February 1801
