    1652 Pine Tree Shilling, AU53
    Noe-17, Ex: F. Dabney Caldwell

    1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Small Planchet AU53 NGC. Noe-17, W-840, Salmon 3-B, R.3. 70.9 grains. A lovely cream-gray example with mark-free surfaces and good centering. All peripheral letters are complete and the strike is generally bold. The usual die state is seen here, with a small break from the trunk at the center of the tree and scattered minor crumbling across the reverse margin. This Condition Census example is equal to the Garrett coin, and finer than most others that we have seen, including the VF25 Newman piece. The best Ford coin was called Choice XF, and the Eliasberg Collection had a Fine example. Forée Dabney Caldwell, Jr. (1918-1971) was a World War II Navy veteran and a colonial specialist who worked closely with Richard Picker.
    Ex: F. Dabney Caldwell, Jr. Collection (Stack's, 4/1988), lot 1961; Donald Groves Partrick.
