1652 SHILNG Oak Tree Shilling, Spiny Tree, XF45 NGC. Noe-14, W-530, Salmon 11a-Gi, R.4. Ex: Eric P. Newman Collection. 71.8 grains. A scarce and distinctive Guide Book variety named after the many short projections from the tree branches. This Choice XF example is minimally abraded and features a crisp and consistent strike. The legends are complete except for small portions of the obverse peripheral letters between 3 and 7 o'clock. The rocker press wave characteristic of early Massachusetts silver is evident as a slight bulge near the center of the tree. Noe-14 was one of the final die varieties struck prior to the introduction of the Pine Tree subtype, circa-1667. Listed on page 41 of the 2021 Guide Book.

That is an absolutely fantastic example of continental USA coinage history.
