1720-BB MS France Liard, Strasbourg Mint, Gadoury-270, Hodder-1, XF45 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. The obverse exhibits some roughness at 11 o'clock, and a few darker areas are noted on the light brown surfaces. The reverse was struck from a late state of the die, with considerable crumbling; a patch of corrosion can be seen at REX. All 1720-dated liards of the buste enfantin type are considered to be John Law issues and are traditionally included in the series of French Colonial coinage used in North America. Listed on page 54 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
