||1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Small Planchet - Clipped, Bent -- Uncertified. Noe-18, W-845, Salmon 4-B, R.7. 53.8 grains. By comparison, the Hain Family example weighed 73.1 grains. A majority of this tan-brown example has Very Fine sharpness, but each side has an area of heavy wear opposite a bend. A dig below the left-side branches, and small digs near the 6 in the date and the N in NEW, caused the bending. The clips affect the tops of a few letters. This very rare Noe variety is often attributed by the donut-shaped loop within the bottom of the N in IN. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
