Lot Description
1739-P French Colonies Sou Marque. Dijon Mint. Vlack-162. Rarity-2. AU-58 (NGC). The NGC insert incorrectly attributes this piece as a 1739-A sou marque, but the P mintmark of the Dijon Mint is readily evident. More difficult to discern is the digit 3 in the date, which has been effaced by a planchet flaw (as made) in that area. Enough of the digit 9 is evident, however, to attribute the coin as a 1739-P. Other flan flaws are scattered about, especially over the right central obverse, although we see no post production blemishes of note. Warm silver-gray patina with flashes of a semi prooflike finish shining forth from the fields as the surfaces dip into a light.
