1652 Pine Tree Shilling. Small Planchet. Noe-30, Salmon 12-G. Rarity-3. VF-25 (PCGS).
71.14 grains. Endearing dove gray surfaces are evenly toned and free of detracting blemishes. The strike is drawn toward the viewer's left, but it is uneven wear that has resulted in lack of detail along the right obverse and left reverse borders. Otherwise boldly defined, there is much to recommend this coin to the circulated Colonial type collector. The present Pine Tree shilling represents a perfectly acceptable example that would make a sterling beginning to an early American or Massachusetts Bay Colony silver collection.
