1731-H 6 Sols from Isle Du Vent, PCGS VF-35

SOLD

Details

Isles du Vent / Windward Islands. 1731-H 6 sols. La Rochelle mint. VF-35 (PCGS). A popular type, one of just four issues needed for a complete set from the Isles du Vent: two 6 sols, dated 1731 and 1732 along with two 12 sold from the same dates. The 6 sols circulated as half reales throughout the West Indies and have been recovered archaeologically in several places in the American Mid-Atlantic, as have the one-real equivalent 12 sols. This example shows pleasing deep gray toning enriched with dark gold and amber tones, particularly on the reverse. A very faint abrasion low on Louis XV's cheek appears far more notable in the image here than it does on the coin. Nicely struck and showing no notable marks, this is a fine type example of this fascinating if short-lived French colonial coinage.
