Book value of around $150.
I have a complete portrait set of English / British shillings, Charles 11 - Elizabeth 11, but none anywhere the high condition of the sixpence pictured.

Need different lighting angles for viewer to be sure polished or not.
I will give the OP the benefit of OK so far.

A well preserved sixpence but Peter's probably right.
Exposure to air and the passing of time will cause silver to tone naturally so nothing 203 years old would be that shiny unless it had been polished.

Re toning will happen after polishing, but I would like to see luster under the toning, if it hasn't been polished.
That is why different lighting angle is needed.

Pics out of the 2x2 would be in a step in the right direction.

Thank you to all who posted. My gut says that they should be returned to sender?

Caveat emptor.
Unless bought purely for intrinsic value.
What worries me is that people have commented that they can't see the cleaning,I'm 100% certain,this has destroyed the coins as
numismatic items.

I agree that looks like a massive polish rub across the face,with the typical flattened high points. Lost all those sharp lines. Real shame Filler value sadly now
