    1652 Pine Tree Shilling, Fine 15
    Very Rare Noe-20, Small Planchet

    1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Small Planchet, Noe-20, W-860, Salmon 6-B, R.7, Fine 15 NGC. 67.9 grains. Die alignment: 30°. A true rarity among the Small Planchet Pine Tree shillings. As is clearly seen, both dies were badly cracked: on the obverse, this is most obvious at 12 o'clock between H and V, at 9 o'clock by the S, and above 3 o'clock below the T. On the reverse, large cracks above NE of NEW and through D AN show the die's deterioration (it was used on six other varieties). The coin itself is worn, but well-centered and without any real problems. The coloration is pleasant, and on the whole this piece is a very nice example of a rare variety. Listed on page 41 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    Ex: C.H. Stearns Collection (Mayflower, 12/1966), lot 106; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. (NGC ID# 2ARZ, PCGS# 24)

    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.
