1652 Massachusetts Oak Tree Shilling the Ghost Tree Noe-10 Rarity-6+ PCGS Genu. Rather glossy dark steel gray with lighter silvery gray toning on the highpoints. The details grade is at least VF where those areas were properly struck up, but the strike was uneven. The central part of the obverse is bulged outward and the legend left of the tree is weakly struck, as is the opposing area right of the denomination. The date and denomination are bold and the lightly engraved "Ghost Tree" is mostly visible. Parts of the legend outside the beads are off the planchet, and the light weight (47.9 grains) suggests there was some clipping done to this piece. Still a decent example of the popular "Ghost Tree" type. Listed on page 39 in the "Redbook." Estimated Value $2,000-UP

Realized $2,115
