Irish Shilling


Recommended Posts

I got a small pile of european coins recently and I was wondering if anyone has any information on the 1940 1 shilling from Ireland. It's an Au with a small ring ding, and a bull on the one side, other than that, I really don't know much about it.

Thanks Erik, great information! That is indeed the one I have, maybe not as Au as I thought though seeing that pic, I'll downgrade to an Xf lol. My grading of foreign money is rather sub-par. Give me a US issue and I'm fine until I hit Ms-65/66 lol. Anyway, that's exactly what I wanted to know, thanks.


And btw, how many SQ's did you want for that peso! :ninja:


Hehe, talk to ya later,
