Adams PBvi 6-G variety, struck in Gilt Brass.

With a full length, large-headed portrait of Vernon on the obverse, canon left, anchor right, beneath the slightly scattershot, backward N’d legend THE BRITISH GLORY REVIV.D BY ADMIRAL VERNON.

The reverse depicts 6 ships in Porto Bello harbor surrounded by HE TOOK PORTO BELLO WITH SIX SHIPS ONLY.

And this is a fantastic, super fresh, seemingly undergraded brilliant gold example which would make a resplendent example for type.

This coin is from the CRO archives and is not currently available for sale.
