    1652 Oak Tree Shilling, MS63
    Noe-6.1, Among the Finest Known

    1652 SHILNG Oak Tree Shilling, IN at Bottom, MS63 NGC. CAC. Noe-6.1, W-480, Salmon 4-D, R.6. 71.0 grains. 1991 ANS Exhibition Coin, #41. Described in the Levinson catalog as "a truly sensational example of the variety." This piece is finer than any others we have seen. The dove-gray surfaces are unabraded. The obverse centering is good, although the tops of TS IN MA are off the flan; the reverse centering is nearly perfect. The strike is bold. Cataloged as Noe-6.1.1 in the Hain Family sale, but instead it is Picker's 6.1 since the "bottom curve of first S [is] completed."

    Die states of the Noe variety numbers are complicated. A decimal ".1" indicates an earlier die state, while other decimals indicate later die states. Therefore, Noe-6.1.1 is earlier than 6.1, which in turn is earlier than Noe-6.
    Ex: Estate of Sidney A. Levinson (Stack's, 4/1988), lot 1; Hain Family Collection (Stack's, 1/2002), lot 25; Purchased from Jon Hanson, 1/2003; Donald Groves Partrick.
