AU58 Noe-1 Large Planchet Pine Tree Shilling1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Large Planchet AU58 NGC. Pellets at trunk. Noe-1, Crosby 12-I, R.2. 71.5 grains. This is classic die pairing desired by most type collectors as it captures the classic look of Massachusetts silver with the large, well made and smooth planchets. These were apparently struck on the rocker press used for the Oak Tree issues, and therefore the planchets show the familiar "S" shaped bend in the flan. The coins were struck on strips of silver, then hand cut by large shears which created uneven edges. On the present coin, there is a minor void on the edge at 3 o'clock on the obverse, and the obverse is struck off center toward the bottom as nearly always encountered. Die clashing below the tree. A later die state, with the reverse die crack spanning the reverse horizontally through the center with several lumps. Gorgeous old dark to medium gray toning, with excellent surfaces that reveal few signs of handling and no significant disturbances. A faint pin scratch spans the center of the reverse from the upper left to lower right. A desirable coin that any collector will long appreciate. Listed on page 37 of the 2007 Guide Book. (PCGS# 23)
