What is the diameter of this coin? (I am not familiar with US coins :ninja: )


It's either a sixpence or shilling and there are various varieties of each.

1787 sixpence, hearts variety. If you look at the German shield on the left, the lion that is standing has 'v' shaped hearts surrounding it. There was an error (or rather an omission) on the part of the die cutters for some of these sixpences, where they forgot to put the hearts in. So some 1787 sixpences are heartless (and cruel and nasty t'boot! :ninja: )
