1720-CC [Besancon Mint] John Law Half Sol. Overall Fine, a difficult coin to grade as it has central design detail approaching EF, but is very weakly struck at the left, with much of those legends lost on either side, and struck on a flawed planchet as well. The quality is typical for this mint, which struck this denomination only in this year (it also struck the Liard in three years and the Sol in one year); the coin illustrated in Smith’s article shows a similar striking weakness, and he notes just 3 of this date and mintmark in his survey of 255 specimens of the Half Sol.
