    Is this a Cut 1652 Massachusetts Schilling??

    Found this in a colonial field. I was told this is a cut piece of a 1652 Massachusetts tree schilling? I am not a coin expert by any stretch but arent those super rare? Can anyone confirm this coin. Click image for larger version.

    Might be - Massachusetts shilling, but it is intriguing. What part of Virginia? From the tidewater area or Richmond, it could be 300 years old. However, welcome to the hammered coin club!

    There are dots between the N : and DO on them. I'm not seeing the dots. Yours is similar however. AN.DOM translates into "the year of our Lord". They were made for numerous years, PLUS there are variations, PLUS it could be a contemporary counterfeit (kinda doubt it) but that would be cool. Since they were made for numerous years, I would try to find a reference on the varieties. I think there lies your answer.

    Hammered silver coins in the US are not common, that's for sure, even the Spanish Maravedis (bronze) are hard to find.

    Works for me! Nice! Last week I found (best professional opinion which I got) a 14th century hammered German coin in Maryland. It is toast, but who cares...

    Living and detecting in Massachusetts, I can say a pine tree is at the top of my wish list. These coins are valuable even in low grades. Not sure about cut coins, though I suspect it is still highly desirable. I know I like it. Congrats.
