O – Riom Mint - 1740-O Billon Sous Marques. Vlack 155. Rarity-8. Fine to Very Fine, probably of the higher grade in terms of wear. The obverse legend full, the date weaker but visible and the design strong. The reverse is struck slightly off center to the right, pushing D G FR partially or all off the planchet, but allowing the denticles at the left to be fully on the planchet, detail seldom seen in this series and here showing the edge of the die itself. Light gray, the surfaces slightly rough, the reverse evenly so, the obverse more on the right side, the roughness possibly from burial, though the coin did not tone dark if that was the case. A shallow lamination at the left obverse, and a few light edge chips. A very rare date, as are all the Riom mint issues save for 1739 (though that date has four of the six listed varieties as Rarity-8). None of this date in Ford.
