however
, different issue marks in angles on the reverses of
some sixpences. Roses - silver from west of England mines,
Roses & Plumes - silver from "Company for smelting down
lead with Pitcole and Seacole" and Plumes - silver from mines
in Wales.

Some coins of 1745 and 1746 have LIMA below the bust.
These were made using silver captured from the Spanish  by
Admiral George Anson in June 1743.

The first obverse was by John Croker. The second and third
obverse's were by John Sigismund Tanner.

The only difference between the second and third obverse's
are that in the second obverse the U in GEORGIUS is in the
shape of a U, whereas in the third obverse it is the shape of
a V.
