Shilling Isle of Man - Douglas 1811 Obverse: View of Peel Castle, no legend, within linear circle and toothed border, Reverse: Legend in 5 lines: DOUGLAS BANK TOKEN ONE SHILLING BRITISH 1811, Davis 6, EF and lustrous with hints of golden toning, with some minor contact marks, Extremely rare and a lot scarcer than the of similar design. Worthy of a place in the most advanced Isle of Man collection. We note the Neil B. Todd collection example was sold in 2015 and realised £1200 hammer price in a saleroom, this piece slightly superior. We also note that there is an example in the Victoria Museum, Australia which is also inferior to this stunning piece
