Description 1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Small Planchet VF25 NGC. Noe-17, W-840, Salmon 3-B, R.3. 69.0 grains. Each side of this variety has a letter exhibiting doubling. On the obverse, it is the H of Massachusetts, and though this piece circulated for a time, portions of the doubling remain observable. One of the strokes in the X on the reverse sometimes displays doubling, but that doubling was eliminated as the die state advanced. This example reveals attractive hues of gold, pink, pale blue, and lavender when examined closely. The strike is just slightly off center, with the only marks worthy of mention appearing at the outer portion near 3 o'clock on the obverse and the corresponding location on the reverse. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,965.63. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
