    1721-B French Colonies 9 Deniers, VF25
    W-11825, Martin 1.5-A.5

    1721-B 9DEN French Colonies 9 Deniers, Rouen Mint, W-11825, Martin 1.5-A.5, R.3, VF25 NGC. Die alignment: 180º. The scarcest date/mint combination of the 9 denier series. This example features a very late state of the obverse die, with the crack at B extending into the adorsed and crossed L's: this must be nearly terminal and is considerably later than the pieces depicted in Martin. The coin is well centered and struck, with the obverse between 12 and 2 o'clock being weak and lighter in color. A very nice representative of this difficult issue. Listed on page 55 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
