    Lightly Circulated 1662 Oak Tree Two Pence

    1662 Oak Tree Two Pence XF 45 PCGS. Small 2. Breen-35. Although the Oak Tree twopence pieces dated 1652 are believed to be 19th century forgeries, the original 1662 pieces trace their origin back to the 1660 contract between the Generall Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the coiner John Hull. An irregularly struck piece, both sides display incomplete borders and peripheral design elements. The visible details, however, exhibit excellence of execution and retain their major features despite light wear throughout. Both sides of this piece carry a pleasing blanket of charcoal-gray patination and problem-free surfaces. Listed on page 17 of the current Guide Book.
