    1652 Pine Tree Shilling

    1652 Pine Tree Shilling VF 30. Small Planchet. Breen-53, Noe-16. 56.3 grains. The planchet is somewhat clipped with the outer ring of denticles incomplete but the letters only minimally affected. This is a later die state showing a die break among the branches on the left side of the pine tree. Medium silver-gray surfaces with lighter highlights. Overall, this is an attractive example of this historic and desirable coinage. The pine tree pieces were struck from 1667-1682 but were backdated to the date of the first Massachusetts coinage. This is one of the issues that regularly shows up on the want lists of non-collectors. Listed on page 18 of the 2001 Guide Book.
