(1652) SHILNG New England Shilling AU50 PCGS. Noe III-C, R.6. 72.07 gn. Six different combinations of the NE shillings are recorded in the literature, produced from three obverse punches and four reverse punches. Approximately 60 NE shillings are known in all grades, and from all die combinations. The original production quantity is unknown. In the Ford Collection catalog (part XII), the Stack's cataloger notes: "One family but a tight group, three obverse and four reverse punches in six marriages. The close relationship among the marriages and the lack of an extended family (out runners, singleton marriages, etc.) argues for a short-lived coinage but one of some considerable output."



This NE shilling is an exceptional piece that has a pedigree to the John Ford Collection, and the collections of George J. Bauer, T. James Clarke, and F.C.C. Boyd before that. It is a smooth, deep gray example with an exceptional, round planchet. The surfaces are smooth and pristine. Only about 20 example of the Noe III-C NE shilling are known in all grades, yet it is the single most common variety of the series.
