This coin is an Irish Free State shilling struck in the Royal Mint in 1937.

This coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The scanner tends to tone down the lustre and show some brighter areas as dark. The actual coin is bright white with fully lustrous surfaces. However as is not uncommon there are a number of small nicks and scratches on the coin which were caused in the minting and bagging process. These marks known as 'bag marks' do not qualify as circulation damage as the general surface luster is intact (which it wouldn't be after even a very short period in circulation), but uncirculated coins with fewer bagmarks are generally more desirable and expensive.

The 1937 shilling is the most difficult of the coins in the Irish shilling series. Heavily worn examples are generally available, but better circulated grades are more difficult to obtain and uncirculated examples are very scarce.
