||1652 3PENCE Oak Tree Threepence XF45 NGC. Noe-28, W-310, Salmon 6-B, R.4. 17.6 grains. A nicely centered Choice XF specimen, this piece displays strong definition overall. Both sides reveal attractive shades of gold, silver, pale sea-green, and lavender. This is an earlier die state example, prior to the appearance of a die crack near 3 o'clock on the reverse. Salmon believes this variety was "probably struck nearly concurrently with the twopence, or around 1662." Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
