1652 Pine Tree Shilling. Small Planchet. Noe-16, Salmon 2-B. Rarity-2. Genuine--Damage (PCGS).
62.8 grains. The PCGS insert incorrectly attributes this coin as a Large Planchet example. Nicely centered on both sides and fairly original overall, nearly all major design elements are visible with the reverse particularly bold. A planchet crack is noted at 6 o'clock on the obverse, and a few light bends are noted but the overall appearance is quite nice. Worth more than a casual glance, this particular Pine Tree shilling could prove a pleasant surprise to the right collector. VF Details.
