Obverse: MASATHVSETS IN
Reverse: NEWENGLAND A N DOM. [in a beaded oval] 1652 / XII
Weight: 100.3 g (6.50grams) Diameter: 25.1 mm
Comments: This is a modern souvenir reproduction in imitation of the Willow Tree shilling. Although the appearance is similar to the original coins, it does not imitate any know die type. It has been added to give the novice a general idea of the style of this coin type. The size and weight of original examples are equal to the NE coins. Like NE coins the Willow tree series are quite rare.
Provenance: Loaned in September of 1998 for scanning and inclusion on this site by Cliffton Gilchrist of Mishawaka, Indiana.
