Description 1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Small Planchet XF45 NGC. Noe-16, W-835, Salmon 2-B, R.2. 68.2 grains. This beautifully centered piece exhibits bold detail and only light wear. The fully struck-up letters and almost complete border beading contribute to the strong visual appeal. Salmon provides a lovely description of this obverse, stating, "The branches are more realistic and demonstrate a gentle but greater upward curvature, and are detailed by short spines that project more vertically." While the obverse of this example displays subtle light gray and gold colors, the reverse is more colorful, with shades of gold, orange, pink, green, and blue. A die break is present on that side, extending from the rim near the D in ENGLAND through the upper portion of the A. Although a few hair thin marks appear on the coin, they are not distracting. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $9,400.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
