Queen Anne Shilling

Shilling of Anne

John Cochran is a member of the West Riding Detector Group and he said he found this coin a few years since when he was using with a Deus detecting machine. It’s a shilling of Anne, which is dated 1711 on the reverse. Shillings of Anne aren’t rare in themselves but very few turn up as detecting finds and of those that do the majority are very worn and/or bent as love tokens. There are two busts for 1711: the third, which is very rare and the fourth bust, which is fairly common. John’s find has the fourth bust on the obverse.

Valuation

I’d grade the coin as good Fine and in that condition it would be worth £50-60 to a collector.
