    1652 Noe-34 Pine Tree Threepence, XF45

    1652 3PENCE Pine Tree Threepence, Pellets at Trunk, Noe-34, W-630, Salmon 1-A, R.4, XF45 NGC. 17.5 grains. Die alignment: 360°. The Noe-34 is invariably struck with the top of the obverse die off planchet -- even the Noe plate coin exhibits this trait. The reverse, while better centered, is somewhat crudely laid out, with NEWENGLAND appearing as one word followed by a too-wide break, and with the date appearing to be punctuated 16.52 by the central dot. This golden-hued example is better than most, with strong detail and an especially nice reverse (the weakness at EN being typical of the variety). A tiny planchet crack is present on the obverse to the right of the top of the tree. Listed on page 41 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    Ex: Spink's (1962); Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. (NGC ID# 5JDS, Variety PCGS# 45365, Base PCGS# 21)

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
