1652 Pine Tree Shilling. Small Planchet. Noe-20, Salmon 6-B, W-860. Rarity-7. Fine Details--Repaired (PCGS).69.4 grains. Tinges of olive-brown patina remain near the borders while the centers have a brighter silvery complexion. Holed and plugged in the right obverse field with the affected tree branches crudely re-engraved. The corresponding area on the reverse shows tooling and excess metal, leaving the first half of the date and denomination fully obscured. The dies are heavily fatigued in this marriage and show considerable cracks throughout the legends on both sides. Even so, the strike is well-centered with nearly full denticulation on the reverse. A suitable example of this rare variety.From the Robert M. Martin Collection.
