Noe 8 variety, Large Planchet type. Considered to be Rarity-4. 71.8 gns.
A big, bold and incredibly impressive example of this large planchet Pine Tree Shilling variety.
Well struck, well centered, well balanced and simply beautiful, with the entire design and full legends represented as well as can be found on this type.
If one desires a single, definitive example of Massachusetts silver this would be an excellent selection.
Rich silvery-gray in color with substantial luster remaining as is almost never seen on any coin of any type, variety, or denomination in this series.
In all, a fantastic example which has been described as such and lauded over in landmark auction catalogs dating back more than a century. We could go on and on, but the coin and its illustrious pedigree of past connoisseur owners speaks for itself.
Ex Lorin Parmelee, John G. Mills, George H. Earle, Clarence S. Bement, Charles E. Clapp, Carl Wurtzbach, T. James Clarke, F.C.C. Boyd, John Ford.
