1753/2-A Sou Marque. Paris Mint. Vlack-33a. Rarity-8. First Semester. MS-62 (PCGS).31.2 grains. Highly elusive as a date or an overdate, this is one of the great rarities in the Paris Mint sou marque series. The final digit in the date is broken, so its evidence is equivocal, but the horns protruding from its right are suggestive of the elements of an underlying 2. Full silvering with fairly even golden-gray patina. The planchet is flawed toward the lower obverse border, minor striations through the central reverse, but the overall detail is bold to sharp.PCGS# 915863.From the Sydney F. Martin Collection. Earlier from our (Stacks) sale of the Robert A. Vlack Collection, January 2008 Americana Sale, lot 5340.
