This talk will present items with the value of one shilling from several series around the world. Beginning with a discussion of what makes something rare, a die study of the testoons issued by Henry VII will be presented. The attached picture is the piece that started the study. This is followed by other pieces from the regal series that are a bit more obscure and then a tour of the less familiar numismatic byways of paper money, tokens, and counterfeits from Britain and around the world.
