When you see corrections on later coins where the die was number punched, there's usually a sign of the correction... aka an overdate when it's a number. Letters now that I think of it they seem to tend to leave alone... but if they do correct it, it's pretty sloppy. I've seen that on counterfeit halfpennies.
    Thanks IP,
    Too bad there's no examples with a clear 'M'. the 28 was the first threepence with all the S's facing the correct way
    theory is that the 28 was produced in 1662, when the twopence was made, they started producing some coins with punched planchets on a screw press. (the 28, the twopences, and small planchet pine shillings).
    Most Mass silvers have the s bend from rocker pressing, but it appears that when coinage was needed,
    (it was only needed when a customer brought silver to the mint for coining. Hull didn't make coins for the 'colony')
    they would be produced with whatever dies and methods were useable and handy.
    Even one of the 'NE' series appears to be made on a punched planchet.
    Unlike what we are used to seeing with modern coinage, the Boston mint didn't stop producing older designs just because a new design was introduced. HH all.

    there are several pieces of evidence I've found that bear this out.
    The old cartpath was widened and the top surface was scraped off and pushed over the hillside in the late 19th century, along with everything that was lost on that path since first settlement.
    As stated, the four coins were recovered almost accidentally after detecting maybe 20 square feet of area.
    ( iron whomp whomp whomp)
    In between all the iron pipe, rusting barrels, modern trash, dense undergrowth and vicious thorns could be a lot more goodies.
    Research brought me to the general area, chance brought my coil over the coins.
    I haven't been back since my first visit.
    When I told the property owner about the coins,
    I was cut short and asked to just make sure to inform him if I recover any gold.
    Well, a hammered gold has always been my grail
    Got enough of those darned milled ones
    HH All !
    Your theory sounds right on... How long is this road? If its longer than a football field I dont think T-nets banner is going to be long enough. Glad you found the sweet spot... Art

    Very rare and a cool find Herbie!
    Love all of the background history with all your posts too my friend.

    Definitely helps put your finds in 'historical perspective' for me!

    hmm...I wish I had coins crusty enough (silver...) to play with.....Id like to try my citric (should work like lemon juice) and oxalic (may have no effect) acids and see what happens.....oxalic should be more gentle....but less effective....
