1652 Pine Tree Shilling. Large Planchet. Noe-7, Salmon 6-Diii, W-730. Rarity-6. Without Pellets at Trunk, Reversed N. EF Details--Damage (PCGS). 62.0 grains. There is a lot of detail remaining on both sides of this well struck example to tempt the astute collector of Massachusetts Bay Colony silver coinage. The strike is well centered, both sides with all design elements boldly rendered and clear. The planchet is less than perfectly round with a couple of extremely shallow straight clips, the most prominent of which is at 12 oclock, the upper borders on both sides through the letters. The lower right border is flush with the top of the letters S in MASATHVSETS and I in IN, outer beading present only along the left obverse and right reverse borders. A tiny dig in the lower right obverse field is noted, but the PCGS qualifier largely concerns a lightly pitted, matte-like texture that points to years of immersion in sea water. Cleaned since then, although remnants of light olive-russet scaling persist, mostly around the reverse periphery. This coin has the appearance of having been salvaged from the wreck of H.B.M.S. <em>Feversham</em>, although it was not offered in either of our (Coin Galleries and Stacks, April 1998 and January 1999, respectively) offerings from that treasure. Regardless of its provenance, this is a respectable EF to represent a rare die marriage of the Large Planchet Pine Tree shilling. Collector tag with attribution notation included.
