Hey all 

I'm thinking of adding this coin to my collection. What do you guys think, how much would you pay 

Assuming it is genuine, it looks to be in decent collectable condition, so £40-£50?

I would say you should be able to get this, for around £20 if not less.

Grade wise looks to be about fine, would not be much better than this, Colour wise looks good.

It has the  semee of hearts around the horse in the Hanoverian arms,(the shield on the left with T . H above it).

With these, and the Shilling, you can get them with Hearts and without hearts.

These are struck "en medaille" with both side showing the same way.

The 1787 shilling can also be found with no stop at the various points around the coin, nothing much to do with this Sixpence ,however you will probably want both if you get one 😊.

Now if you can find a 1798 Shilling with no stop, it is a 'Dorrien and Magens' shilling worth thousands, but be careful as there are a lot of fakes of these.

A good coin maybe to get a feel for them to start with, however you should be able to get a really good example, for not much more,(in some Auctions you can find them within one lot coins) ,as these were really well struck, only real thing to watch out for is coins that have been over cleaned.

On most of the 1798 fakes the fish tails are the give away, that is the way the metal has not been able to flow correctly into lettering similar to the III and some of the lettering on your Sixpence above, there are only a few known 1798 so more than likely none are real. 

Hope this all helps and good luck if you decide to get it.
