1721-H 9DEN French Colonies 9 Deniers, La Rochelle Mint, W-11830, Martin 2.23-B.5, R.5 -- Environmental Damage -- NGC Details. VF. Die alignment: 210?. While bearing evidence of ground corrosion, this remains an interesting die variety with a high-sitting crown touching the legend. The 9 denier coins were not widely accepted in Canada as their intrinsic value was only about 6 deniers. They were mostly returned to France, which then foisted them upon their Louisiana holdings at a reduced valuation. Listed on page 55 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
