1652 3PENCE Pine Tree Threepence, Pellets at Trunk, Noe-34, W-630, Salmon 1-A, R.4, XF45 NGC. 17.5 grains. Die alignment: 360?. The Noe-34 is invariably struck with the top of the obverse die off planchet -- even the Noe plate coin exhibits this trait. The reverse, while better centered, is somewhat crudely laid out, with NEWENGLAND appearing as one word followed by a too-wide break, and with the date appearing to be punctuated 16.52 by the central dot. This golden-hued example is better than most, with strong detail and an especially nice reverse (the weakness at EN being typical of the variety). A tiny planchet crack is present on the obverse to the right of the top of the tree. Listed on page 41 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Spink's (1962); Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
