    1652 Noe-1 Pine Tree Shilling, MS65
    Large Planchet Rocker-Press Issue

    1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Large Planchet, Pellets at Trunk, MS65 NGC. Noe-1, W-690, Salmon 1-A, R.2. 70.6 grains. Ex: NN 6/67. The pellets at each side of the tree on this obverse are described as a type of privy mark, and that feature is diagnostic for the obverse of Noe-1. The colon punctuation is diagnostic for the reverse die.

    The irregular planchet of this piece has trivial clips at the sides, almost certainly done at the Boston Mint as this piece has a similar appearance to many other examples of Noe-1. The Large Planchet Pine Tree shillings were made on the rocker press that remained in use following production of the Willow Tree and Oak Tree coinage. All of these pieces were struck on strips of planchet stock, which helps to explain centering issues on many varieties. Once coined, the individual pieces were cut from the strip with heavy cutting shears, explaining the many ragged edges, straight clipped-edges, and other defects.

    Both sides are highly lustrous with sky-blue and sunset-gold toning. A minuscule mark at the bottom of the reverse positively identifies this Gem as the 1967 New Netherlands coin. This intermediate die state piece is approximately equal to lot 88 in the Hain Family Collection. A die break joins the tops of 16, and others appear at the upper left and lower right parts of the N in AN, with a further break at the left top of the D in DOM. Listed on page 41 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: New Netherlands (59th Sale, 6/1967), lot 1041. Earlier from England; Donald Groves Partrick / FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2015), lot 5568.
