    1670-A Five Sols, AU50
    W-11605, Struck for America

    1670-A French Colonies 5 Sols AU50 NGC. Breen-256, W-11605, Martin 2-A. The 1670-A (Paris Mint) 5 sols was among the few silver issues struck by France for their American colonies. While the later 9, 12, and 24 deniers copper or billon issues are merely scarce (as a type), the silver 5 sols is undeniably rare. This lightly circulated example displays unblemished gunmetal-gray surfaces. The centers show moderate incompleteness of strike. Absent dentils on the right reverse border are likely caused by a planchet of variable thickness. Listed on page 54 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Donald G. Partrick.
