    1652 Pine Tree Shilling, AU Details
    Norweb's Very Rare Noe-23

    1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Small Planchet -- Repaired -- NGC Details. AU. Noe-23, W-875, Salmon 8-C, High R.6. 65.8 grains. A well-defined example of this rare variety, described as "possibly second finest known" in the Norweb catalog, and that statement applies equally today. Five other examples in our records are each graded in the Very Fine range. The deep gray surfaces are evenly granular, as issued. A light impression from a planchet cutter, as made and present prior to the strike, is noted near the top of the tree and opposite at top of 52. The shape is somewhat oval; the obverse appears misaligned toward 4 o'clock with right-side letters partly off the flan. Smoothed on the reverse border between 1 and 3 o'clock, removing the letters D and A, and the period between them. The coin remains as plated in the 1987 Norweb catalog, and the repair is presumably more than a century old, since Albert Holden died in 1913.
