Description 1652 3PENCE Oak Tree Threepence VF35 NGC. Noe-24, W-270, Salmon 2-A, R.6. 17.0 grains. Only the word MASATHVSETS appears around the obverse; no IN is present on this variety. In addition, only the first S is backwards. A lovely Choice VF example, this coin exhibits an off-center strike on both sides, with the tree retaining bold detail.

Stearns (Mayflower Coin Auctions, Inc., 12/1966), lot 70; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $10,575.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
