    1652 Oak Tree Shilling, XF45
    Noe-13.6, Early Spiny Tree
    Ex: Hawn, Partrick

    1652 SHILNG Oak Tree Shilling, IN at Bottom, XF45 NGC. CAC. Noe-13.6, W-520, R.6. 68.1 grains. IN at Bottom, Spiny Tree. Noe-13.6 is a fairly late die state of Noe-13. The first S has a longer tail, the second S has an upper serif, and the tree has spines. Unlike Noe-14, the top of the 5 is straight, and the diagonal breaks on the central obverse are still present. Noe-13.6 is sometimes cataloged as Noe-14, e.g. Ford:43, due to the popularity and Guide Book listing of the Spiny Tree variety. This Noe-13.6 shilling is predominantly stone-gray, but exhibits olive-green, wheat-gold, and lilac undertones. The surfaces are mildly glossy but refreshingly unabraded. The reverse has exemplary centering while the obverse is slightly off toward 5 o'clock, with IN partly off the flan. The slight bulge present on the obverse center is usual for a rocker press product.
    Ex: Reed Hawn Collection of Massachusetts Silver (Stack's, 5/1998), lot 14; Donald Groves Partrick Collection (Heritage, 1/2015), lot 5543.
