    Cut 1652 Massachusetts Oak Tree "spiny tree" schilling

    I was digging in a colonial field in Central VA and had a pretty scratchy tone however there is little trash so I dig most signals. After it came out of the hole I was sure I had another cut Silver reale as I have dug a few others at this site. After looking at it I noticed the lettering and rope border was different than other old silver I have dug so I inquired about it and got the amazing news its a 1652 Massachusetts Oak Tree Schilling. What a piece of US history. Very fortunate and thrilled to have save this piece from a tractor as it was not very deep.

    lifetime achievement here! Congrats on plucking this needle from the haystack! Just as good as finding a whole in my opinion! Living in Ma puts me at ground zero for that coin!!! but my chances are pretty slim to find one.... I can still dream! There is a Macy's building in downtown Boston that has a tiny plaque and designates the spot where those coins were minted. The landscape has changed drastically there!
