High Grade 1652 Oak Tree Sixpence, AU531652 6PENCE Oak Tree Sixpence AU53 PCGS. CAC. Crosby 6-F, Noe-16, W-360, R.5. The obverse is characterized by the peripheral legend MASATHVSETS. The reverse legend reads: IN NEWENGLAND. ANO. Struck on a rocker press, the problem with this early method of manufacture is evident on almost all Noe-16s as the obverse and reverse dies are misaligned, therefore the resultant pieces are off center relative to each other. This is an especially well-preserved example that is sharply struck. The surfaces are uncleaned and original with medium-density gray patina overall with slightly lighter tints at the margins. Several pinscratches are located in the center of the obverse in the branches of the tree. Listed on page 36 of the 2011 Guide Book. (PCGS# 19)
