    1662 Oak Tree Twopence, MS63
    Noe-29, Small 2 Noe Plate Coin

    1662 2PENCE Oak Tree Twopence, Small 2, MS63 NGC. CAC. Noe-29, W-240, Salmon 1-A, R.6. 11.9 grains. The plate coin in Noe's ANS standard reference The Oak Tree Coinage of Massachusetts. It was also a plate coin in Carl Wurtzbach's 1937 publication, a "limited edition leather bound set of black and white photographic plates of his collection," as described in the Ford catalog, Part XII. The tail on the 2 in the date is a stub, diagnostic for Noe-29. All Oak Tree twopence were coined from the same die pair. Noe-29, 30, and 31 are identified by die breaks on the 2, which is small and distant from 166. The 2 was then re-engraved on the die, larger and closer, to make the Noe-32, 33, and 34 varieties. This well-preserved gunmetal-gray example has a fully struck tree, date, and denomination. All letters are completely present, despite moderate obverse misalignment toward 7 o'clock.
