1720-B [Rouen Mint] John Law Sol. Very Fine, perhaps a tad sharper at the centers, somewhat weak at the top obverse due to a straight planchet clip there. The obverse legend is bold, the reverse weak only at the X of REX and first two digits of the date, the rest mostly strong, including the mintmark. Struck in a nice, hard reddish copper, the surfaces with some light green spots on top of them (not eaten into the surfaces, and likely removable), the reverse with some ancient scratches at the lower half. A rare issue, the Rouen mint struck Sols only in 1719 and 1720, and of the 262 examples of the denomination Smith recorded, only 4 were of this date and mint.
