  Shillings  
1702 Shilling counterfeit 1702 Shilling. slightly smaller 24mm. This looks like a pretty poor attempt at a counterfeit in a surprisingly high grade. As usual, very little actual wear but lack of silver is beginning to show. Still appears to be struck rather than cast, quite a rare example. A good quality example of a poor forgery. Judge for yourself VF 85 Order
1750 Shilling counterfeit 1750 Shilling. Wide 0 in 1750. A surprisingly high grade, very little actual wear but the plating is beginning to show on the obverse. This forgery is actually an accurate copy of a rarer variety of a genuine coin, i.e. the wide 0 type. Especially nice being a recognisable variety - a good quality forgery, counterfeit. gVF 75 Order
