1744-C French Colonies Sou Marque. Caen Mint. Vlack-61. Rarity-7. MS-62 (PCGS). An extremely rare issue struck at Caen, and conditionally rare as well! Attractive silvering occupies much of the fields, which also exhibit cream-gray toning and slightly darker accents on the high points of the design. Evenly struck with a noticeable mint-made die cud at the top of the reverse. An important opportunity for the collector of early colonial coins.
