    1721-B French Colonies 9 Deniers, XF45
    Famous Louisiana Issue

    1721-B French Colonies 9 deniers, W-11825, XF45 NGC. Martin 1.10-A.8, R.4. The obverse is caramel-brown and the reverse is coffee-brown on this pleasing and important French Colonies 9 deniers. Trivial handling marks and minor rim nicks are noted, but they pose only a slight concern. Both sides exhibit light variegated toning. John Law's Compagnie des Indes held a monopoly on trade in North America. The 9 deniers coins were struck at Rouen (B mintmark) in 1721, and at La Rochelle (H mintmark) in 1721 and 1722. Listed on page 55 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Robert A. Vlack; C. Margolis (5/25/1990); Donald G. Partrick.
