    Very Fine 1662 Oak Tree Twopence, Noe-30

    1662 2PENCE Oak Tree Twopence VF20 PCGS. Small Date. Crosby 1-A2, Noe-30, R.4. 11.7 grains. Although the Oak Tree twopence pieces dated 1652 are believed to be 19th century forgeries, this original 1662 piece traces its origin back to the 1660 contract between the Generall Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the coiner John Hull. Both sides display incomplete borders and peripheral design elements that are likely the combined result of an imperfect strike causing the planchet to buckle, and subsequent uneven wear. The visible details, however, retain more than adequate definition of the major features to offset these weaker areas. Indeed, overall this piece is quite sharp for the grade. Listed on page 36 of the 2009 Guide Book.
    Ex: Steve Glenn Collection (Heritage, 4/2006), lot 1, which realized $3,450.
