    1652 Noe-7 Oak Tree Shilling, AU53

    1652 SHILNG Oak Tree Shilling, IN at Bottom AU53 NGC. Noe-7, W-480, Salmon 5-D, R.6. 68.2 grains. Ample glimpses of mint gloss confirm that this Oak Tree shilling has witnessed only light early American circulation. The tan-brown surfaces display a wave near the top of the tree, an artifact of its rocker press production. A minor flan crack is present at 12:30, but post-strike contact is absent aside from a trivial pinscratch to the right of the tree trunk. Mint-made clips affect the tops of several letters. Evenly and crisply struck except for minor weakness near 12 o'clock. For a Noe-7, the die state is intermediate, without the often-seen break beneath the 2 in the date, though the break near the N in AN DOM is well advanced. The teardrop-shaped break left of the tree trunk is usual for Noe-7, as are the narrow breaks near the D in ENGLAND.

    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.
