1652 SHILNG Oak Tree Shilling, IN at Bottom, Noe-11, W-510, Salmon 9-Fi, R.6, VF30 NGC. 69.4 grains. Die alignment: 360?. A complex tree dominates the obverse of this Oak Tree variety, with a thick, textured trunk and distinct shrubs on either side, all of it set on top of a curved hill. This central device was entirely recut over the Noe-10 "Ghost Tree" obverse, at which time the legend was also strengthened. While the coin is a bit off-center, the positioning of MASATHVSETS and NEW ENGLAND is nicely emphasized. Rose highlights show through the brown-gray background color, attesting to the coin's originality. Listed on page 41 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: C.H. Stearns Collection (Mayflower, 12/1966), lot 42; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

Heritage Newman IX, November 2017, lot 15004, realized $4320. Images and description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
