    1652 Pine Tree Shilling, AU53
    Noe-11, Large Planchet

    1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Large Planchet, No H in MASATVSETS AU53 NGC. Noe-11, W-760, Salmon 9-F, R.4. 73.4 grains. A lovely walnut-brown representative, this coin boasts a consistent strike and an absence of consequential marks. A flan imperfection, near 12 o'clock on each side, is as made. The centering favors the right-side legends, which are complete. Most left-side letters are partial but all of ENGLAND is present. All Ns in the legends are retrograde, evidence of the difficulty faced by an engraver obligated to lay out dies in mirrored form. The colony name is blundered as MASATVSETS, inadvertently omitting the letter H. As usual for Noe-11, design elements near 5 o'clock on the reverse are faint, due to a partially lapped die.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
