Z – Grenoble Mint - 1739-Z Billon Sous Marques. Vlack 221. Rarity-8. Very Fine, a bit weak at the upper left with TUM mostly lost, the rest of the legend full, the letters and numbers mostly sharp. Nice design detail on either side. Light silvery gray, the original silvering fairly complete on the obverse, the high points rubbed off a bit on the reverse. There is a small flaw at the rim at the extreme right obverse, and a tiny one at the extreme left, these there before the coin was struck, and these add a crude sort of charm to the piece. Grenoble struck the Sous Marques for just three years, 1739-1741, but it rivals Riom mint in the number of punctuation variations, with this year having three listed by Vlack and at least one additional one discovered since. Ford did not have this variety, while Vlack’s was called VF but was nicer. Quite rare.
