    1652 Pine Tree Shilling, Noe-2, MS61
    Large Planchet, No Pellets at Trunk
    Late Die State

    1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Large Planchet, No Pellets at Trunk, MS61 NGC. Noe-2, W-700, Salmon 2-C, R.5. 71.6 gn. No Pellets at Trunk. The diamond-shaped tree, tall 6 pointing straight up, and 5 positioned under LA in ENGLAND are characteristics of Noe-2, sometimes referred to as the Straight Tree variety. The last Uncirculated example from this die pair we had the pleasure of handling was the Eliasberg-Partrick coin in MS64. While that finest-known piece grades three points higher than this MS61, it lacked the complete legends seen here. It is typical to encounter these Large Planchet shillings with clipped edges -- a tactic employed by Boston mint employees to reduce the weight of their product. This survivor is mostly well-rounded with a couple of obtuse angles. Glossy gunmetal surfaces show myriad raise lumps in the reverse fields and the obverse die is worn, suggesting a later striking period. A mark near the second T in MASATHVSETS is the only one of note. Listed on page 51 of the 2019 Guide Book.
