WILLIAM III SHILLING
1695-1701
There are six different obverse and only one reverse issued for
the shilling of William III reign. However obverse two is
exceedingly rare and is believed to be unique it  could possibly  
be a pattern.

Some however have different issue marks in angles on the
reverses.
Roses in angles - silver from West of England mines
Plumes in angles or below bust - silver from Welsh mines.

Due to the "Great Recoinage" during William III reign,  
hammered silver coins were to be withdrawn and replaced with
milled coins instead. A lot of the coins were minted at local
mints until 1698 to produce the large quantities required.
They have letters below the bust: B= Bristol, C=Chester,
E= Exeter, N= Norwich & Y= York.
