1720-AA [Metz Mint] John Law Half Sol. Choice Extremely Fine, a wonderful grade for any John Law copper, and especially so from this mint. Boldly struck as expected, everything sharp including all the hair on the youthful king’s head. Light mottled brown, a small clip visible at the top obverse, but no real damage from circulation. This is the rarest of the major design types, with the engraver’s mark beneath the bust on the obverse, with just 2 examples of this type found by Smith in the 255 Half Sols he examined. Few will likely be as attractive as this.
