Expert Comments

Ron Guth:

In 1652, John Hull began striking silver coins bearing an image of a pine tree on the obverse and the date and denomination on the reverse.  This design followed Hull's "Oak Tree" design.

Massachusetts "Pine Tree" Sixpence consist of the following die varieties:
   Noe 32
   Noe 33
   Noe 33a
