Outstanding AU 1652 Pine Tree Shilling
Large Planchet 1652 Massachusetts Bay Colony. Pine Tree Shilling. Noe-8, Crosby 1b-D, W-740. Large Planchet. Rarity-4. AU-58 PCGS. 71.0 grains. The satiny and lustrous surfaces are steel-gray with an amazing array of old-time blue and gold iridescence in the fields and protected design areas – if ever tampered with, it probably wasn’t within our lifetime. This example is as sharp as ever found for an issue that can be notoriously weak at points on the obverse. Though struck on a rocker press, there is only a slight inkling of waviness for this planchet. Straight planchet clip at 3 o’clock relative to obverse, die state slightly earlier than Ford:94 with more root details present here; there are absolutely no marks of any consequence on the obverse, even under low magnification. The reverse is in the advanced state with cuds at GL at top, and at OM at the bottom, and with other letters filled in places. The reverse has taken the same journey through the centuries as the obverse, and it has fared nearly as well; one faint scratch, probably as old as the coin from the looks of it, runs diagonally downward from the right side of the second upright in the denomination to a bead – bidding friends, we’ve done the “nit-picking” for you. The obverse of this specimen is somewhat sharper to the eye than of Ford:94 and with finer centering than that august piece; here, the rim just touches the tops of HV S. The aesthetics here are in a class with any of the four Ford specimens to our eye. You will never regret bidding for this exceptional Pine Tree shilling!
