Great Britain Shilling with Scottish Reverse 1937 to 1951
Like all the coins in this series, madscotsmen's coin catalogs for less than $1 US dollar unless it is completely uncirculated, like the coin in the picture. A collector might pay $5 to $10 for an uncirculated specimen.
The coin in the picture has a Scottish reverse. There is a similar family of coins with the same years and approximately the same numismatic values with English reverses.
Coins before 1947 contain 0.091 troy ounces of silver and therefore command a premium over coins after 1946 which are made of copper-nickel.
Review coins with the English reverse at this CoinQuest link. Values are the same.
