(circa-1850) New England Sixpence, Wyatt Copy, Silver, MS62 NGC. Kenney-2, W-14010, Low R.7. Thomas Wyatt of New York City is the best-known maker of mid-19th century deceptive copies of Massachusetts silver. Wyatt even imitated the out-of-round characteristics of the genuine N.E. sixpence, created by shallow straight clips along the borders. Granular recessions are present at 5 o'clock on the obverse, and opposite at 7 o'clock on the reverse. The fields exhibit heavy parallel die polish lines, as struck. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.HID05401242017
