1721-H 9DEN French Colonies 9 Deniers, La Rochelle Mint, W-11830, Martin 3.1-B.1, R.3, VF35 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. A crudely engraved variety, and a late state of the obverse with considerable die rust to the legends between 3 and 7 o'clock. Its primitive characteristics aside, this is a well-preserved example. The only problem worth mentioning is a short dig in the central reverse that toned over a very long time ago. The 9 denier pieces were struck on copper flans prepared in Sweden and purchased by Law's Compagnie des Indes. Listed on page 55 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
