    1652 Pine Tree Sixpence, MS64
    Noe-33a, Finest Known

    1652 6PENCE Pine Tree Sixpence MS64 NGC. CAC. Noe-33a, W-670, Salmon 2*-B, R.5. 33.4 grains. Luster rolls across this evenly struck and unabraded near-Gem that ranks as the finest known Noe-33a sixpence. The borders are deep sea-green, and traces of mahogany-red outline the central elements. The reverse appears slightly misaligned toward 7 o'clock. Mint clips affect the tops of several peripheral letters, as made and customary for the series, certainly for weight adjustment. The die state is early, since the vertical break left of the 6 is spindly except near its base. Mildly wavy, as issued, due to the nature of rocker press coinage. This is the properly centered Noe-33a; presumably, the coiner noticed that the obverse of Noe-33 was off center. The alignment was then corrected, but by that time a majority of the variety had already been produced.
    Ex: Jon Hanson; Donald Groves Partrick. (NGC ID# 2ART, PCGS# 22)
