Description 1652 3PENCE Pine Tree Threepence, Without Pellets at Trunk MS63 NGC. Noe-36, W-640, Salmon 2-B, R.4. 16.0 grains. This is a well struck and glossy high grade Pine Tree type coin. Lovely sea-green and almond-gold surfaces are devoid of detractions. Mint clips, as made, create a somewhat oval appearance. The peripheral letters are complete, although the outer beads are absent between 5 and 10 o'clock on the obverse, and between 11 and 2 o'clock on the reverse. An obverse die break near 1:30 is relatively large but affects only two beads of the outer circle. Several light horizontal die lines on the upper obverse are usual for Noe-36, as is the broad repunching on the base of the second S in MASATHVSETS. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $49,937.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
