Description:
Finest Known Noe-16 IN on Reverse
1652 Oak Tree Sixpence, MS62
1652 6PENCE Oak Tree Sixpence MS62 PCGS. Crosby 6-F, Noe-16, W-360, R.5. Ex: Ford. IN on Reverse. 38.2 gn per its Ford catalog appearance. This remarkable Massachusetts sixpence was described by Michael Hodder in the Ford:XII catalog as "the finest seen by the cataloger, better than the sharp Hain coin, the EF in New Netherland's 60th sale, and finer than the Stearns, Roper, Norweb, Massachusetts Historical Society (1970), and even the outstanding 1991 ANS exhibition coins. This variety was missing from both the Garrett and Oechsner collections. Breen thought this was possibly the finest known."
This is a principally gunmetal-gray example with glimpses of olive-green and rose-red. Luster glimmers from design elements, and no abrasions are evident. The shape is nearly round, and the strike from rocker dies is consistently sharp throughout the reverse and the upper obverse. The lower half of the obverse is well impressed between 6 and 9 o'clock although the roots and trunk of the tree are lightly brought up, as is the letter E.
A later die state with straight, narrow breaks near the E in MASATHVSETS and between the L and D in ENGLAND. There are eight different Noe varieties of Oak Tree sixpence, but Noe-16 can be attributed at a glance due to its unique placement of the NEW ENGLAND legend.
Only a single Massachusetts sixpence of any variety has appeared at auction certified in a finer grade. That was a Noe-22 MS63 PCGS that realized $86,250 as lot 3005 in our 2010 Boston ANA Platinum Night auction. Listed on page 37 of the 2012 Guide Book.
Ex: Charles E. Clapp Collection; Carl Wurtzbach Collection; T. James Clarke Collection; F.C.C. Boyd Collection; John J. Ford, Jr. Collection of Massachusetts Silver (Stack's, 10/2005), lot 44; Bowers & Merena (Baltimore Auction, 11/2010), lot 85. (PCGS# 19)
