Default Maybe you can help tell me what I have? (1652 coin)

So I posted in the vintage boards about how I was just given a old baseball card collection from an individual who just passed away. I got my usual assortment of 1980s junk, but the collection also had other old cards. Anyway, in one of the boxes (actually an old chocolate box from the 80s) was this coin sitting underneath a stack of cards. Obviously, I can go on google and amass some information, but I wanted to see if any of you know old coins.

I can get more pictures if needed.

From what I got from google the coin is a New England sixpence, or something of that nature? What type of tree is on the coin? Is it worth anything?

Thanks for any/all help and advice.

ok so after doing a little more digging, I believe what you have there is this:

however...given the condition of that one vs. the condition of yours, I find it highly unlikely that the one you have is real. If it is...then dayum lol.

Correct, it is an Oak Tree Shilling, but it is a worthless reproduction.
