1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Small Planchet, Noe-15, W-830, Salmon 1-A, R.5, Fine 12 NGC. 63.4 grains. Die alignment: 360?. The Noe-15 is generally regarded as the first Small Planchet Pine Tree Shilling variety to be produced, probably around 1675. This piece bears a pleasing pink-tan hue over smooth surfaces, with bold detail for the grade assigned. A small planchet flaw at the 6 o'clock rim is as struck. The coin is a bit off-center, though the reverse maintains a strong NEW ENGLAND, 1652, and XII. Listed on page 41 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
