1743-A Sou Marque. Paris Mint. Vlack-22. Rarity-8. First Semester. MS-61 (PCGS).35.6 grains. Most unusual in being the first semester issue of the date and not the usually seen second semester hoard coin. Nice, bright silver obverse with iridescent golden toning more extensive on the reverse. Some striations visible at the lower right on the former side, also through the center of the reverse. Most features are boldly rendered, however, and the eye appeal is strong.PCGS# 158678.From the Sydney F. Martin Collection. Earlier from our (Stacks) sale of the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection, Part XIII, January 2006, lot 134.
