French Colonies / France. 1750/48 A 24 deniers or "sou marque." Paris mint. Vlack-30b. Rarity-8. MS-61 (PCGS).

SOLD

Details

A rare overdate, far rarer than the standard 1750-A sou marque, listed as Rarity-5 by Vlack. Glowing bright lustre remains on both sides, with brilliant surfaces showing an attractive pale gold toning. Some natural striations in the planchet appear, manifesting as light roughness at centers, but the strike and eye appeal is good. Similar to the Vlack plate coin, which brought $690 in January 2008 and resold (as PCGS MS-61) in the November 2008 Bowers and Merena sale for $805. This piece is struck from the same dies, though in an earlier state. This type is a vital inclusion in any collection of French colonial pieces, as these circulated widely and commonly in the French dominions of North America and the West Indies, though it is more of a French mainland type adopted into widespread service here rather than a true colonial. Mint State ones are scarce in general, and this overdate variety can rightly be called rare in this or any other grade.
