1652 Massachusetts Oak Tree Shilling Noe-5 Rarity-2 PCGS graded AU50. Type with IN at bottom of the obverse. Choice medium steel gray with lighter silvery steel toning on the highpoints. Essentially flawless with just a hint of friction on the devices. The surfaces are smooth and there are no notable marks or planchet defects. The obverse (tree side) is misaligned to the bottom, as nearly always on this variety, and the reverse is centered on the planchet. Later die state with a rim cud break at the top of the obverse and numerous die cracks in the legend on the right side of the reverse. The Oak Tree is complete, the date and denomination are bold, and the legends are strong with the exception of the tops of those letters that are off the planchet at the bottom of the obverse. A great example of the Oak Tree Shilling, perfect for a high grade colonial type set. Listed on page 41 in the "Redbook." Pop 5; 15 finer at PCGS for the variety. Estimate Value $7,500 - UP
