Z – Grenoble Mint - 1741-Z Billon Sous Marques. Vlack 223. Rarity-8. Very Good detail, the surfaces uniformly rough and the planchet with some chipping around the edge, likely a result of burial. Much of the legend can be seen, save for the area where the edge is chipped; the date is quite weak, but is visible with a glass. The central design detail sharper than expected for the grade, and this was likely a fairly high grade coin when lost, since most of the silvering is still there. Light gray, the reverse with darker color at the center, the surfaces rough as mentioned. A very rare variety, probably no longer the full R-8 given in the Vlack book, as the Ford sale had one (a weak VF that brought US $1,610!), Vlack had a rough VG, and we know of at least a couple others in private collections, so Rarity-7 is probably more accurate. This is the last year that Grenoble struck the denomination, and there is just one punctuation variety for the year.
