from
£299.00
A very rare counter marked George the Third Shilling dated 1819. The circular obverse 6mm countermark stamp, shows a lion walking right and is the import value for 2 Reales of Costa Rica from 1849-57. Like many other countries Costa Rica used countermarks on other countries coins to claim them as their own, due to the lack of silver or means to strike coins themselves.
