1652 Pine Tree Shilling. Large Planchet. Noe-7, Salmon 6-Dii, W-730. Rarity-6. Without Pellets at Trunk. EF-40, saltwater surfaces.63.8 grains. A pleasing survivor of this rare variety recovered from the <em>Feversham </em>shipwreck. The surfaces are granular and bright from extended exposure to sea water and areas of darker encrustations remain throughout the legends. A soft waviness is left in the planchet from the rocker press, though the devices are evenly sharp. Well centered on each side with a dramatic die break across the reverse from 11 to 5 oclock as is usually seen. The legends are mostly intact, with just the tops of ND.AN falling off the edge on the reverse. This piece first came to market in our (Coin Galleries) sale of April 1998, where it was sold alongside 10 other Massachusetts Silver coins from the shipwreck. Offered in lot 1775, it was noted to be "one of the better pieces in this group."From the Robert M. Martin Collection. Ex H.M.B.S. Feversham shipwreck; our (Stacks) Coin Galleries sale of April 1998, lot 1755; our sale of November 2012, lot 6325.
