    1652 Oak Tree Threepence, Choice XF
    Noe-27.1.1 Discovery Coin
    Tied for the Finest Known

    1652 Oak Tree Threepence, No IN on Obverse, XF45 NGC. CAC. Noe-27.1.1, W-300, Salmon 5-Aii, R.5. 16.6 grains. The discovery coin for Noe-27.1.1. For its 1968 auction appearance, New Netherlands noted that the present coin was intermediate between Noe-26 and Noe-27. It had the die break at EW, removed for Noe-27, but the 6, 2, and EWEN differ from Noe-26. The 1 and 5 differ from Noe-27. It was listed by Ford as "Noe-26.8," then renumbered by Picker in his 1976 ANS article in Studies on Money in Early America. The coin is an attractive cream-gray piece with sharp definition except on the right obverse and left reverse borders. All letters are intact despite a straight mint clip at 3 o'clock.
