Description 1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Small Planchet -- Rims Filed -- VF Details. Noe-22, W-870, Salmon 8-B, R.6. 69.2 grains. The rose-gray devices serve as a highlight to the deep gray fields on both sides of this example. The obverse is nicely centered, while the reverse was struck low on the planchet. The strike is sharp, with the designs only minimally impacted by wear. One diagnostic for this obverse is that several of the branches are not attached to the trunk and appear to float in the air. The reverse for this variety is shared with a number of other varieties, with the difference being the progression of the die break at AN. A few marks appearing at the reverse center do not pose a distraction. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4,700.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
