    Desirable 1652 Massachusetts Sixpence, Noe-33, AU58

    1652 6PENCE Pine Tree Sixpence AU58 NGC. Crosby 1-A, Noe-33, High R.3. 33.3 grains. Pellets at trunk. Struck from misaligned dies with the obverse off-center at 12 o'clock and the reverse normally centered, diagnostic for the variety. Those with the obverse and reverse both centered are cataloged as Noe-33a. Today, Noe-33 is the only collectible Pine Tree sixpence, known to the extent of 200 to 300 pieces. Less than two dozen examples of the other two varieties are known in all grades.
    This appears to be one of the finest surviving examples of the variety, finer than either the Hain or Ford specimens, based on comparison with the catalog photos. It has lovely gray and dark blue color, with traces of iridescent highlights on both sides.
