This note presents a 1703 VIGO shilling of Queen Anne with an unrecorded overdate 3 over 2. My thanks go to Alan Worby of MH Coins for the images and permission to publish. This prompted a quick search to see if any other specimens could be found. Online archives produced images of 74 specimens of sufficient quality to allow a die study of the reverse dies. A statistical analysis of the 16 different dies suggests that the die count is likely almost complete.

I don’t know if this is of any interest to Gary but attached is a further example of the 1703 Vigo shilling (I think reverse die 6.2). I bought this from Timothy Medhurst in 2021 and the images attached are his. I don’t know where it came from before that so it may already be in Gary’s archive. Regards, Peter R Thomps
Thanks for the contact. The pictures didn’t come through, please could you send direct to me at firstname.lastname@example.org ? and I will have a look, check the die and see if it is a new piece – just might be able to give you an earlier provenence.
All the best
