(circa-1850) Good Samaritan Shilling, Oak Tree, Wyatt Fantasy, Silver, MS62 NGC. W-14092, High R.7. Eric Newman later proved that the "original" Good Samaritan shilling was altered from a Pine Tree shilling, but during the lifetime of Thomas Wyatt, it was considered a very rare and desirable variety, ideal for copy dies production. W-14092 is a mule that pairs the Kenney-8 Good Samaritan obverse with the Kenney-3 Oak Tree shilling reverse. The fields display rich tan-brown toning that contrasts with the stone-gray motifs and legends. Die polish lines are prevalent, and the left obverse displays a prominent die break, but there are no abrasions. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.HID05401242017
