1652 Oak Tree Shilling. Noe-10, Salmon 8-F. Rarity-6. IN at Bottom. Fine-12 Clipped Planchet.
52.5 grains. Even light gray surfaces with slate peripheries, about half of the obverse letters are visible while the inner beaded circle is nearly complete. The reverse displays stronger definition with a bold date and denomination and NEW EN AN.DO legible. Though the planchet has been clipped, the overall shape is decidedly circular, if not a bit oblong with a slight dimple at 12 o'clock on the reverse. A rare variety in a wholly collectable condition.
Pedigree: Paper envelope with attribution notation included.
