Tortola, 2 shillings, countermark TIRTILA inside contoured indent (Type III, 1805-24) on a Martinique moco (1797, scalloped-edge 1/4 cut of a Spanish colonial bust 8 reales of Charles III), rare, NGC Fair 2, c/s XF strong. KM-unl (cf. 18); Prid-35. 6.68 grams. Very deep, bold and full countermark with I's for O's (evidently issued privately and intentionally misspelled to avoid accusations of forgery), with faint king's ordinal III still visible on the host on that side, the other side with clear scallop-cut edges (scarce thus), richly old-toned all over. All multiple-island issues, like this one, are rare. NGC #5902083-011.
