||George III counterstamped Bank of England Dollar ND (1797), S-3765A, ESC-134, "XF Details Scratches" NGC. A rarer undertype, from colonial Chile, an 8 Reales of 1794-So DA, rated R3 by ESC, this piece shows a lot of character. It was in fact used as emergency currency with an English value of 5 Shillings. It bears some large scratches around the portrait and other scuffing, but the important details are all sharp, old King George's oval c/s is excellent, and the coin carries a pleasing golden blue iridescent cast on its silvery gray surfaces. An historic piece.
