    1652 Noe-14 Oak Tree Shilling, VF30
    The Spiny Tree

    1652 SHILNG Oak Tree Shilling, Spiny Tree, Noe-14, W-530, Salmon 11a-Gi, R.4, VF30 PCGS. 68.83 grains. Die alignment 30°. The Spiny Tree shillings in the Oak Tree series present attribution problems, as Noe 13, Noe 14, and the intermediate states known as Noe-13.3, 13.6, and 13.9, are all from the same pair of dies with various recuttings or other differences. While we have identified this piece as the plentiful Noe-14, there are similarities to the much rarer Noe-13.6 and 13.9, the latter almost impossible to distinguish from Noe-14. This lovely pewter-gray example has outstanding surfaces that are free from marks, with a nearly full obverse legend and complete reverse legend. A truly exceptional piece for the grade. Listed on page 41 of the 2018 Guide Book.
