1652 Pine Tree Shilling. Small Planchet. Noe-25, Salmon 8-E. Rarity-5. Fine-12.
62.2 grains. Even pewter toning with light golden centers, the surfaces are generally smooth and wholesome. The obverse is well-centered and the devices and legends are nearly completely visible, though faintly so. A small clip at 3 o'clock corresponds with just a touch of planchet roughness in the same area. The reverse displays a planchet break from 8 to 10 o'clock though the date, denomination and legends are mostly bold aside from EW and DO which are only faintly legible. An ideal piece for a collector who wishes to begin an early American type set, this scarce variety will be welcomed by those with a numismatic budget to consider.
Pedigree: Paper envelope with attribution notation included.
