Description 1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Large Planchet, No H in MASATVSETS AU53 NGC. Noe-11, W-760, Salmon 9-F, R.4. 73.4 grains. A lovely walnut-brown representative, this coin boasts a consistent strike and an absence of consequential marks. A flan imperfection, near 12 o'clock on each side, is as made. The centering favors the right-side legends, which are complete. Most left-side letters are partial but all of ENGLAND is present. All Ns in the legends are retrograde, evidence of the difficulty faced by an engraver obligated to lay out dies in mirrored form. The colony name is blundered as MASATVSETS, inadvertently omitting the letter H. As usual for Noe-11, design elements near 5 o'clock on the reverse are faint, due to a partially lapped die. Ex: 1952 ANA Sale (New Netherlands, 8/1952), lot 2381; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $16,450.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
