Charles 1st silver shilling

Postby CliffB » 29 August 2016

Hi all, Charles 1st hammered silver shilling, this was my first hammered coin that i found.
Tower Mint under Charles 1st
MM Triangle in circle 1641-3 at Aberystwyth with silver from the Welsh mines
This coin is well worn and clipped but is well worth a look at.
weight 5.5g :)

it looks like we have the same scale but im having a problem of when i turn the scale on the numbers keep going up and i have re calibrated it and someone gave me some batteries saying they were new.....im planing to buy some batteries my self and see if that fixes it but can you give me any tips on what it could be. My wife uses it for cooking generally.

Have you calibrated it with a oz weight, I would not calibrate it with a Bullion coin ( Troy oz)
Mine came already set Tom Silver

Thanks Bounty, I have had this one for nearly 2 years now mate, even with it being well clipped and a bit worn, it was my first hammered coin and that find is burned into my brain :D
