Comments

NOTE: Rope removed between tip of bowsprit over the spritsail to foremast of circulation strikings, or Pridmore 5a Proofs

Pridmore 6 were struck in 3 separate batches, likely of 100 a piece. The letter S following GEORGIVS can clearly show variants which identify the batch of production. S over S, Triple hubbed S and S over wide S all exist clearly.
