I - Limoges Mint - 1740-I Billon Sous Marques. Vlack 116. Rarity-6. Very Fine, this is the Vlack PLATE COIN in his book, the only full coin illustrated in the Limoges section, and was sold in the sale of Bob’s collection as Lot 5169 where it was described as “Very Fine. Very scarce as a date. Somewhat mottled appearance.” The coin is sharply struck, with just light, even wear. The surfaces are a nice pewter hue, with much original silvering on the obverse and a smaller amount on the reverse toned down to a golden color, with a few areas of darker toning in the peripheries accounting for the mottled look. The nicest example Vlack was able to find in many decades of collecting the series, and an important piece as a plate coin for the standard reference book. Accompanied by Vlack’s original typed envelope and the lot ticket from the sale of his collection.
