1652 6P Pine Tree MS65 PCGS #22

Noe-33. Wildly better than any other Pine Tree Sixpence. Off-center on the obverse, but better than most of the variety, perfectly-centered reverse with full legends. Highly lustrous with no visible marks or hairlines and subtle, attractive lilac and russet toning. I am still attempting to track down the provenance of this piece, although it doesn't appear in any well-known collections.

1652 Shilling Pine Tree, No Pellets MS62 PCGS #45370

Noe-2, the Straight Tree. The second finest Straight Tree seen. The present specimen has a lot of frost and has toned around the periphery.

1652 Shilling Pine Tree, Small Planchet MS64 PCGS #24

Finest Known Small Planchet Pine Tree Shilling of any variety. While Small Planchet Pines are plentiful, there are well under ten known examples in mint state. I have owned both MS64s, and this is the example that I kept for my collection.
