    Red Book Plate Coin
    Pine Tree Shilling, Noe-1, AU58

    1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Large Planchet AU58 PCGS. Pellets at trunk. Noe-1, Crosby 12-I, R.2. 72.99 grains. Produced early in the life of the die marriage, as evinced by the complete lack of die breaks found on many, if not most Noe-1 shillings. This variety was usually impressed on relatively wide flans using well executed roller dies. As such, Noe-1 is often chosen to represent Massachusetts Silver in a Colonial type set. The current piece adds considerable desirability due to its lovely state of preservation. Luster gently shines through the utterly original pewter-gray patination on both sides. The details are unusually well impressed and the only anomaly that we can find worthy of disclosing is a small, as made, planchet void at the rim near the N in NEW. The slightly off center obverse (tree side) is typical observed on Noe-1 Pine Tree shillings. A slightly wavy planchet reminds us of the method of manufacture for these early silver pieces and only adds to the charm. For all of the aforementioned positive qualities, the current specimen was chosen to be the Guide Book plate coin from 1997 through 2006, which is denoted on the holder as "Red Book Plate Coin." Listed on page 37 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 22 in 58, 15 finer (12/07).
