I’ve been thinking of what to say ever since this was posted. There’s nothing to say. I would’ve dropped dead.

Wow, what a find! They are incredibly scarce here in MA, and you are digging one in Maryland... Great job. You found the coin we are all looking for here in Massachusetts. That is my dream coin for sure.

Note: While the date on the coin says 1652, there were no Pine Tree shillings minted in 1652. This was the year the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony authorized the minting of coinage in the colony. The Pine Tree was minted starting in 1667 until the authorization to mint coinage expired in 1682.

Willow Tree coins (the rarest and most valuable of the tree shillings) were minted 1652-1659. Oak Tree coins were minted 1660-1667. Only the Oak Tree twopence had a date different from 1652 - that date was 1662.

Thanks. Cut pieces are found in the MidAtlantic. I found one last year but a full shilling dug outside of New England is almost unheard of
