Noe-1, Salmon 1-A, W-430 variety, IN at Left Redbook type. Considered to be Rarity-3. 72.5 grains.
The definitive Oak Tree Shilling variety with its artful engraving and well balanced design making it the most sought after by colonial collectors seeking just one example for type.
And this is among the nicest and most appealing examples we’ve owned.
Not graded as highly as the wicked expensive "front line" Partrick or Newman coins (called MS65 and MS64 respectively by NGC), but with much more pleasing shape than either of those, lovely original color and excellent eye appeal.
Which explains why this coin was selected by Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. to represent this issue in what was arguably the greatest collection ever formed.
Ex Bower’s May 1996 sale of the Eliasberg Collection, as noted, lot #2.
