This is one of the rare examples that is <I>not</I> countermarked "RF". Breen states that over 98 percent of the mintage is counterstamped "RF", which was stamped on coins that were recalled to the Paris Mint after the French Revolution, in order to cover over the offending royal symbol of the fleurs de lys. Excellent color and surfaces, both sides are a medium brown with a couple of minor raised encrustations on the obverse, hidden in the lettering. A rarity that will certainly be an important acquisition for the colonial specialist. <BR>Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,250.
