Jersey 1/26 and 1/13 Shilling  1841 to 1871
Jersey 1/26 and 1/13 Shilling 1841 to 1871

Wow! Look at this neat coin in the picture. It is an old 1/26 shilling from the Baliwick of Jersey located in the English channel 19 km west of Normandy, France. Over the years it has acquired a spiffy blue toning. To me, that makes it look great. But most collector shun toned coins, and that's all the better for me!

Our picture comes from respected eBay seller Hobbies-Corner in Montevideo, Uruguay, and CoinQuest thanks them for use of their coin photo.
