1854 France 10 Centimes, TILLEY’S COALS BRIGHTON Counterstamp, Scott 35.204

A nice example of this 19th century countermark on the ubiquitous French host. Tilley Bros appear in Brighton directories for at least 1882-1925. Host is lightly worn and well detailed. The counterstamp is bold and well struck.

I would grade the host Good Fine (Sheldon EF40) and the counterstamp Very Fine (Sheldon AU50) but I have provided high-resolution close up photos so you can decide on a grade for yourself. 

For uncertified coins I provide a grading opinion using both the UK descriptive system and the Sheldon scale (based on ANA Grading Standards and/or PCGS Photograde) which will be better known to my US customers. I offer a grading opinion as a courtesy, but please examine the high resolution close up photos carefully and decide on a grade for yourself.
