    Lustrous AU Small Planchet Pine Tree Shilling

    1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling AU53 PCGS. Small Planchet. Breen-52. Noe-16. 71.9 grains. Struck between 1675 and 1682, this variety is usually only found in low grades. This is a splendid piece that has a great deal of bright mint luster on each side. The centers are silvery-gray with rich multicolored patina around the margins. Well centered also with most of the denticles visible on each side. Accompanied by the envelope in which Dr. Seventko purchased this coin, which describes the grade as "Superb Gem Uncirculated, the finest known." Perhaps a bit optimistic, but in our opinion it is far better than the PCGS subsequently assigned to it would imply. Indeed, we have never seen its equal. Listed on page 18 of the 2001 Guide Book.
    From the Collection of Dr. Joseph M. Seventko.
