Found in a potato field in East Hampton, Long Island by Lillian Rade in February 1990 - Sotheby’s 11/1991, $35,200 - John “Jack” Royse (via a private transaction with Stack’s - Stack’s 11/2012, $431,250

P. Scott Rubin: The New England Sixpence is an extremely rare colonial issue. Only two varieties are known and only Noe 1-A is unquestionably real, the Noe 2-B has been identified as a counterfeit although it may be a contemporary. It is believed that less than 10 specimens of Noe 1-A are known.

The NE sixpence Noe 1-A matches the NE punch of the unique NE Threepence and has a thick NE, the Noe 2-B has delicate NE letters. The last offered copy of Noe 2-B sold for $184,000 in Stack’s Ford Collection Sale Part 12 in 2005, but was returned as counterfeit after the buyer submitted it for certification, and was subsequently sold as such by Stack’s in January, 2008 where it realized $13,800.
