Description 1652 3PENCE Pine Tree Threepence, Without Pellets at Trunk XF40 NGC. Noe-36, W-640, Salmon 2-B, R.4. 16.6 grains. Despite service in New England commerce, this chocolate-brown threepence shows only occasional minor marks. A wave passes diagonally between the second A and the second S in MASATHVSETS, and a second obverse wave is noted near 9 o'clock. A tiny planchet flaw is centered above the M. The obverse is slightly misaligned toward 5 o'clock, but the letters are mostly intact. The reverse has nearly perfect centering. This is the usual die state for Noe-36, without a horizontal die line through the upper beads of the obverse inner circle. Ex: New Netherlands Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,525.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
