1652 SHILNG Oak Tree Shilling, IN at Bottom, AU50 NGC. Noe-6, W-480, Salmon 4-D, R.7. 68.8 grains. A late die state of Noe-6, more rare than Noe-6.1 and its associated states Noe-6.1.1 and "Noe-188.8.131.52" (Norweb: 1163). Heavy clash marks from XII and N DO affect the sharpness of the lower obverse. Half of the D in ENGLAND is consumed by a break, and other breaks enlarge near the AN in AN DOM. Nonetheless, the reverse is well defined, as are the upper and right portions of the obverse. Well centered and unblemished with glints of luster in the design recesses.
