|Title||1721-H 9 Den, BN|

1721-B 9DEN French Colonies 9 Deniers, Rouen Mint, W-11825, Martin 1.5-A.5, R.3, VF25 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. The scarcest date/mint combination of the 9 denier series. This example features a very late state of the obverse die, with the crack at B extending into the adorsed and crossed L's: this must be nearly terminal and is considerably later than the pieces depicted in Martin. The coin is well centered and struck, with the obverse between 12 and 2 o'clock being weak and lighter in color. A very nice representative of this difficult issue. Listed on page 55 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
