A choice and problem free example of the quintessential Pine Tree Shilling design. The color is a wonderful medium gray with ample areas of original silver luster present on the reverse. The strike is quite bold, with all of the design elements perfectly centered on the planchet, quite rare for this issue. The reverse displays a later die state in which a large die break forms from the date and extends to the rim.
The Pine Tree Shillings have always been at the top of most collector’s list for generations. They are considered the first silver coins struck in America and the charming design has captivated buyers since the early 1800s. A truly remarkable example fit for the finest of collections.
Ex. Garrett (B+R 10/80) L.1250, Ellsworth, Parsons, Winsor
