Description

Extremely Rare 1744-A Sou Marque AU55

1744-A French Colonies Sou Marque AU55 NGC. Breen-397, Vlack-23a, R.8. Struck in the second semester and one of only a few such examples that were known to Robert Vlack. This example, with nearly full silvering and lovely pale gray color, may possibly be the finest known. The surfaces have exceptional champagne coloration. Just a trace of wear is visible in the form of slightly darkened color on the devices. Minor flaws are noted at the centers on both sides, part of the original flan and incompletely obliterated by striking pressure. Listed on page 51 of the 2009 Guide Book.
Ex: Oak Collection of American Colonial Coinage (Heritage, 9/2005), which realized $2,530.
