    1652 Noe-21.5 Oak Tree Sixpence, XF Details

    1652 6PENCE Oak Tree Sixpence, IN on Obverse, Noe-21.5, W-400, Salmon 2a-B, R.6 -- Obverse Scratched -- NGC Details. XF. 32.7 grains. Die alignment: 330°. A well-centered example of this interesting die variety, in which a weak first S in MASATHVSETS was recut to make it more distinct but was accidentally engraved backwards. The reverse is particularly pleasing to the eye, being problem-free and nearly perfectly centered. The oval appearance of the inner dotted borders encircling the tree and the date / denomination are an artifact of the rocker press used to strike the Oak Tree coinage. A few very old scrapes to the obverse need to be mentioned, but do little to affect the coin's overall appearance. Listed on page 41 of the 2018 Guide Book.

    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.
