    John Hull : the mint and the economics of Massachusetts coinage

    /2002 [Numismatics Colonial Massachusetts]

    I assume shillings were the predominant if not the only denomination minted in this period Pine Tree sixpence were certainly contemporary with the earlier large planchet shillings because the obverse of one of the Pine Tree sixpence dies was married with an Oak Tree reverse leading one to suspect it was put in use at the end of the Oak Tree series and the start of the Pine Tree series The threepence Pine Tree varieties need further study to determine specifically where they come in the emission sequence relative to other series As there are only two die combinations for the sixpence and four die combinations for the threepence it seems the threepence coins had a longer minting history However it is unknown precisely when they were produced If one assumes a specific portion of the coins
