Description 1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Large Planchet, No Pellets at Trunk -- Reverse Graffiti - NGC Details. XF. Noe-10, W-750, Salmon 8-Diii, R.3. 70.8 grains. This is a well-defined example of the moderately scarce Noe variety. It is nicely centered, with peripheral letters complete except for those near 12 o'clock on each side. The die state is fairly early but a small break is present near the center of the tree. The chocolate-brown surfaces are mostly smooth, although a few stray abrasions are present. The planchet is moderately wavy, as made, due to its rocker press origin. The graffiti referred to by NGC is minor, and consists of four unimportant pinscratches beneath the denomination. Ex: C.H. Stearns (Mayflower Coin Auctions, Inc., 12/1966), lot 85; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,818.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
