    1652 Noe-11 Oak Tree Shilling, VF30

    1652 SHILNG Oak Tree Shilling, IN at Bottom, Noe-11, W-510, Salmon 9-Fi, R.6, VF30 NGC. 69.4 grains. Die alignment: 360°. A complex tree dominates the obverse of this Oak Tree variety, with a thick, textured trunk and distinct shrubs on either side, all of it set on top of a curved hill. This central device was entirely recut over the Noe-10 "Ghost Tree" obverse, at which time the legend was also strengthened. While the coin is a bit off-center, the positioning of MASATHVSETS and NEW ENGLAND is nicely emphasized. Rose highlights show through the brown-gray background color, attesting to the coin's originality. Listed on page 41 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    Ex: C.H. Stearns Collection (Mayflower, 12/1966), lot 42; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. (NGC ID# 2ARL, Variety PCGS# 45362, Base PCGS# 20)

    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.
