||1731-H Windward Islands, Isles Du Vent, 12 Sols, KM-C2, Fine 12 NGC. IC Counterstamp. 38.6 grains. Included here for the IC counterstamp; this piece might be related to the Annapolis silversmith, John Chalmers (1750-1819). However, it is not the countermark that is usually associated with Chalmers. There were numerous silversmiths, jewelers, and related craftsmen who used an IC hallmark. This fascinating piece requires additional research. Ex: Spink & Son, Ltd. (1963); Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
