CoinWeek: Uncool Coins #2 – 1652 Massachusetts Pine Tree Shilling – 4K Video

Massachusetts silvers are one of the few series of colonial coins that actually circulated as money in the colonies. But many myths and misunderstandings surround this coinage.

In this video, dealer Bill Sanders discusses a fascinating Pine Tree Shilling that he recently picked up. It’s a cool coin, for the most part: it has history, mystery, and was obviously used as real money for a time before the American War of Independence.

But it’s also uncool... to find out why, you’ll have to watch!

This is the second video in CoinWeek's Uncool Coins Series. To view the fantastic story of Julian Liedman's ruined 1850 $20 gold coin, click here.
