Description 1652 SHILNG Oak Tree Shilling, IN at Bottom XF45 NGC. Noe-9, W-500, Salmon 7-E, R.5. 69.0 grains. This impressive example has unmarked surfaces and attractive chestnut-gold and gunmetal-blue toning. All legends are complete and the obverse centering is ideal. The mint-made clips affect the upper portion of the reverse outer beaded circle, which causes the reverse to appear slightly off center toward 12 o'clock. A planchet wave, as struck, passes beneath the date and through the upper branches of the tree. Minor horizontal creases accompany the wave. The strike is generally sharp with minor softness noted near 6 o'clock. A very scarce Noe variety, distinctive for a broad tree trunk and a widely separated date and denomination. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $9,400.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
