Description

1652 Oak Tree Shilling. Noe-1, Salmon 1-A. Rarity-3. IN at Left. VF-30 (PCGS).
59.72 grains. This is a lovely mid-grade example of this challenging early Colonial era type. Both sides are outwardly smooth with no detracting abrasions and handsome, fully original, lavender-charcoal patina. Boldly defined in all areas save for near the lower right obverse border, the planchet has been lightly clipped giving the coin a somewhat elliptical shape. The Oak Tree issues followed the NE coinage (1652) and the Willow Tree coinage (1653-1660). Oak Tree coinage is found in four denominations, twopence; threepence; sixpence; and shilling. The Oak Tree issues were struck circa 1660-1667. Examples of the NE coinage and the Willow Tree coinage are rare, with some varieties extraordinarily so, and the Oak Tree coinage is where many collections of Massachusetts Bay Colony silver coinage begins. There certainly is no shame in that! Indeed, at Choice VF-30, the present piece would mark an admirable beginning to a specialized collection of Massachusetts silver coinage.
PCGS# 20.
