    1652 Noe-36 Pine Tree Threepence, MS63

    1652 3PENCE Pine Tree Threepence, Without Pellets at Trunk MS63 NGC. Noe-36, W-640, Salmon 2-B, R.4. 16.0 grains. This is a well struck and glossy high grade Pine Tree type coin. Lovely sea-green and almond-gold surfaces are devoid of detractions. Mint clips, as made, create a somewhat oval appearance. The peripheral letters are complete, although the outer beads are absent between 5 and 10 o'clock on the obverse, and between 11 and 2 o'clock on the reverse. An obverse die break near 1:30 is relatively large but affects only two beads of the outer circle. Several light horizontal die lines on the upper obverse are usual for Noe-36, as is the broad repunching on the base of the second S in MASATHVSETS.

    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.
