This lovely Choice example of a popular French Colonial type is lightly toned in pale olive and pinkish-silver. Both sides exhibit a smooth, satiny texture that provides strong visual appeal. The strike is well balanced for the type, if a bit soft in isolated areas, with virtually all design elements clear and fully appreciable. The date and mintmark are sharp. There is a pronounced die crack along the lower reverse border. This high quality piece is sure to appeal to both advanced type collectors and specialists in this series.
