Contemporary Counterfeit 1751-BB French Colonies Sou Marque. In Imitation of Strasbourg Mint. Vlack-369. Rarity-1. EF-45. 25.1 grains. Boldly and evenly struck with excellent centering. Tan on the high points deepens to slate-violet in the fields. Outstanding eye appeal, attesting to the pride of workmanship of the counterfeiters as compared with the typically mediocre product manufactured at the official mints.
