1652 SHILNG Oak Tree Shilling, IN at Bottom, Noe-13, W-520, Salmon 10-G, R.6, AU50 NGC. CAC. Ex: Norweb, Donald G. Partrick Collection. 66.4 grains. IN at Bottom. The initial die state of Noe-13 with a bold tree that lacks the "spiny" appearance of its eventual Noe-14 successor. The shrub to the right of the tree has a thin base. Cream-gray surfaces show pleasing sharpness on the tree. SATHVSETS is crisp and complete. The obverse is slightly off-center toward 6 o'clock, and the lower letters are partial. Aside from the upper serifs of the M in DOM, the reverse legend is complete. Abrasions are minimal, and the wave through the center of the coin is characteristic of rocker press emission. Listed on page 41 of the 2018 Guide Book.
