1652 Pine Tree Threepence. Noe-34, Salmon 1-A. Rarity-4. Pellets at Trunk. VF Details--Damage (PCGS).
A sharp tree, bold date and denomination, and generally discernible lettering enhance the appeal of this Massachusetts silver piece for circulated type purposes. Both sides are mostly light silver in tone, although subtle copper and charcoal highlights are evident in the protected areas around some of the devices. Largely free of outwardly distracting blemishes, and significantly so given the stated impairment, a few tiny obverse digs and traces of an old, light bend are the only mentionable detractions. The threepence is the smallest of the three Pine Tree silver denominations, which also includes sixpence and shilling denominations.
