1767-A 9 DEN French Colonies Copper Sou, Paris Mint, Vlack 1-A, RF Counterstamp, VF30 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. An attractive mid-grade example of this French Colonial coinage, featuring nice coloration with bold details and a firmly impressed counterstamp. Struck at the Paris Mint during the Ancien R?gieme, these pieces were reissued after the French Revolution with an RF (R?publique Fran?aise) counterstamp. The counterstamp on this example is Vlack M, which was previously unrecorded on the 1-A die variety. Rarely encountered, as here, with a tiny planchet clip to the left. Listed on page 55 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
