    !!! 1652 Pine Tree Shilling !!!

    Almost had a heart attack today when I dug an odd square shaped piece of metal. Looked closer and saw 1652 and about collapsed. It looks clipped but its near full weight at 4.4 grams. Were these clipped like this at the mint sometimes? I havent done a thing to it other than rinse it off with fresh water. Scared to do anything to it really as it looks to have great details underneath. EDIT: I did q-tip some of the flakyness off on the obverse but Im not going any farther for now

    Overweight planchets were adjusted by clipping their edges until they reached the proper weight. That was probably done at the mint.
