    Description

    1652 Noe-4.5 Pine Tree Shilling, MS63
    High Condition Census
    The Roper-Hain Example

    1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Large Planchet MS63 NGC. Noe-4.5, W-720, Salmon 4-D, R.4. 73.0 grains. Ex: Hain. The top edge is nicely rounded from 10:30 to 1:30, while the other three sides are straight, the result of mint clipping. The 73.0-grain weight, one grain over the Massachusetts shilling weight standard, proves that this piece was clipped inside the Boston Mint, rather than outside the mint at a later date. The production method for the Massachusetts silver coinage, struck in strips using a rocker press, and then cut out with heavy shears, resulted in many oddly shaped pieces that look like they were clipped later by individuals trying to accumulate a small quantity of silver at the expense of others. However, the weight of the piece in question will always differentiate between the later clipped pieces, and those that were poorly shaped within the Mint. The former are undesirable, while the latter, such as this lovely Mint State piece, are charming.

    The strike is exceptional except at the top of the reverse, where the rocker-press stretched the planchet and obscured the letters. This piece is the third finest known to us. Exceptional gray patina rests on fully lustrous surfaces with delicate gold and sky-blue overtones.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
