Description 1652 SHILNG Oak Tree Shilling, Spiny Tree XF45 NGC. Noe-14, W-530, Salmon 11a-Gi, R.4. 71.8 grains. A scarce and distinctive Guide Book variety named after the many short projections from the tree branches. The present Choice XF example is minimally abraded and features a crisp and consistent strike. The legends are complete except for small portions of the obverse peripheral letters between 3 and 7 o'clock. The rocker press wave characteristic of early Massachusetts silver is evident as a slight bulge near the center of the tree. Noe-14 was one of the final die varieties struck prior to the introduction of the Pine Tree subtype, circa-1667. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $16,450.00.
