Comments

This piece was countermarked following the Authority of June 1811. Looking at other examples with the same countermark, there are host coins with the date 1815, meaning these coins would have been countermarked starting at 1811 and ending at an uncertain date.

The 1/4 Dollars were had a presumed value of 2-3/4 Escalins.
