Finest PCGS-Certified 1762-BB Sou Marque MS641762-BB SOU M French Colonies Sou Marque MS64 PCGS. Breen-634. Vlack-276. Struck near the end of the billon Sou Marque series, which was produced between 1738 and 1764. The BB mintmark is Strasbourg, and the rowel symbol represents Chief Engraver Jean II Guerin. The heart symbolizes Strasbourg Mint Director Jean Louis Begerle. This gently shimmering example is pearl-gray with faint olive tints. The centering is unimprovable, and the strike is generally crisp, although a few peripheral letters are slightly soft. Refreshingly smooth, and undisturbed by contact. The present piece is the single finest PCGS-certified by two grades. Listed on page 51 of the 2007 Guide Book.
