1741-BB French Colonies Sou Marque. Strasbourg Mint. Vlack-253. Rarity-1. VF-35 (PCGS). Originally toned surfaces exhibit a blend of rich olive-gray and silver-lilac patina. The strike is nicely centered on both sides, and all devices are bold despite the presence of overall light wear. Otherwise free of mentionable blemishes, a small swirl of old, inactive verdigris in the field to the left of the crown is noted for accuracy. An appealing mid-grade type candidate from this extensive French Colonial series.
