1652 Pine Tree Shilling. Small Planchet. Noe-29, Salmon 11-F, W-930. Rarity-3. VF-20 (PCGS).70.22 grains. Bold steely-charcoal patina dominates this coins appearance, although we do note lighter silvery-copper toning to many of the design elements. Well defined overall, if struck slightly off center to the lower borders, mentionable softness of detail is confined to the lower left obverse and lower right reverse peripheries. Minor flan flaws at 2 to 3 oclock on the obverse border are also evident on the reverse. Microgranular overall, yet free of significant marks, this is a handsome VF from a more obtainable die pairing of the Small Planchet Pine Tree shilling that has long been popular with type collectors.
