COMMENTS
An extremely rare, cut Third segment of a Spanish Silver Dollar counter stamped on the obverse and from the esteemed Pridmore Collection. A Government Proclamation on 2 November 1814 ordered that 7,920 Spanish Dollars, be expressly imported to be cut up and put into circulation. The cut segments were counter stamped on the obverse with ‘TR’, ‘G’ and ‘4’: the TR relates to the moneyer, the G for Grenada. And the 4 for the value of 4 Bitts. Testimony to its rarity and collector appeal, this coin sold for $7,700 on an estimate of $2,500 in 2007.
