    1652 Willow Tree Shilling, Good Details
    Noe 1-A, W-150, Recently Identified

    1652 SHILNG Willow Tree Shilling--Clipped Coin--NGC Details. Good. Crosby 1-A, Noe 1-A, W-150, High R.6. 56.3 gn. A new discovery, once erroneously classified as an Oak Tree shilling due to the extensive wear, though the remaining features of this coin are consistent with Obverse 1 in the Crosby and Noe schemes, especially the "loop" in the left-hand branches. Further complicating early attempts at attribution was the multiple strike visible on the reverse; paradoxically, this made the piece easier to attribute as a Willow Tree after the Oak Tree assumption was discarded, since so many Willow Tree shillings show a multiple strike.
    As expected for the details grade, this piece shows extensive wear that is complicated by broad areas of void, legacies of die weakness and the effects of rudimentary striking facilities. The coin's surfaces alternate between light and dark grays. A flat area at the upper right obverse is the major "clip" mentioned on the holder. Listed on page 36 of the 2011 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2ARC, PCGS# 16)
