    1652 Noe-1 Oak Tree Shilling, MS63
    Ex: Eliasberg Collection
    Condition Census

    1652 SHILNG Oak Tree, IN at Left MS63 NGC. Noe-1, W-430, Salmon 1-A, R.3. 72.5 grains. Ex: Eliasberg. Only slight evidence of the rocker-press production appears on this fully lustrous piece. Light gray surfaces exhibit delicate gold and blue toning on each side; eye appeal is excellent. The top of the obverse is slightly crimped, affecting the tops of AS, and the lower legend is slightly off the flan. That feature was undoubtedly characteristic of the planchet, as the weight is slightly greater than the 72-grain standard. The tree is well detailed inside an oval-shaped inner circle. The reverse is nicely centered with complete legends and a perfectly round inner circle. Slight evidence of die rust appears on the reverse, although insufficient to call this piece Noe-1.5, a die state with heavy rust.

    Following the limited NE and Willow Tree coinages, the Oak Tree pieces were struck in substantially greater numbers. For example, there are more survivors of the Noe-1 Oak Tree coinage than for the combined total of NE and Willow Tree pieces of all denominations. The Oak Tree coinage was probably stuck in the early to mid-1660s, including the 1662-dated twopence. All other Oak and Pine Tree pieces maintain the 1652 date, regardless of the actual time of striking.
    Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Estate (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 2; Jon Hanson (5/20/1996); Donald Groves Partrick.
