1767-A 9 DEN French Colonies Copper Sou, Paris Mint, Vlack 2-B, RF Counterstamp, XF45 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. A nicely centered and punched counterstamp make this example of the 1767 Colonial coinage an attractive selection. Original surfaces show a little green in places, but nothing too advanced. Struck from a worn state of the reverse die, with crumbling seen at the end of NOMEN. The counterstamp on this example is Vlack G, showing the break starting at the end of the F's mid-stroke: this is a variety/counterstamp combination not recorded by Vlack. Listed on page 55 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
