Firm Sale Type Name Date Notes Lot
Goldberg Auctioneers Auction Pre-Long Beach Sep-2002 A rare issue in any grade, this particular example is the only one graded by PCGS according to their online Population Report, giving an indication how few of this date are found. The surfaces are slightly rough probably as made, and the coin has light silvery gray color with hints of dark colors intermixed. Fully struck by the dies, and with no other problems worthy of note.
These were issued for the French colonies in Canada, and many circulated into the Louisiana Territory as trade was flourishing at the time. Breen notes these to be "rare", and given that this is the only example of this date graded by PCGS, they may be quite rare.
Estimated Value $2,000 - 2,500.
From the Paul Arthur Norris Collection.
