Scotland, George III Scottish Patina in Pewter
George III Scottish Patina in Pewter. This is the fabulous Patina George III issue for Scotland. It is based on the portrait of King George III by Kuchler that was used on the Bank of England Emergency issues for the Dollars of 1804. These are retro dated ‘1808’ and show what a Scottish issue might have looked like, had it been issued at the time. You have the bust of King George III on one side and the crowned double thistle on the other side. They are large crownsized pieces struck in Pewter. The mintage is only 1,000 pieces.
