    1652 Noe-33A Pine Tree Sixpence, XF45
    Rare Centered Subvariety

    1652 6PENCE Pine Tree Sixpence, Pellets at Trunk, Noe-33A, W-670, Salmon 2*-B, R.5+, XF45 NGC. 33.7 grains. Die alignment: 360°. A remarkable coin whose true rarity is often understated by the R.3 rating assigned to the usual Noe-33 sixpence. The Noe-33 unfailingly comes with the obverse struck off-center, with the legend at the top cut off (see the Noe and Salmon plate coins); the present example was struck with the dies recentered, and shows full obverse legends with only the peripheries slightly off planchet. Picker (1976) dubbed well-centered examples struck from these dies "Noe-33A," and they are considerably more rare than standard Noe-33s. This example is attractive and problem-free, with rose highlights augmenting the warm gray coloration; it is slightly better than the Kendall coin. The die break to the left of the 6 in the date is more advanced than is seen in Noe-33, showing that the Noe-33A was struck after Noe-33. A tiny planchet crack near the rim at 3 o'clock obverse / 9 o'clock reverse is mentioned only for accuracy. 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.
