1720-S [Reims Mint] John Law Half Sol. Very Fine, just a bit flat at the obverse center, as struck, everything else sharp and high in that grade level, the legends and date particularly bold. Mahogany brown, the surfaces mostly hard, with a few light specks of green on either side. By far the most common of the Half Sols, with 86 of the 255 examined by Smith being of this date and mintmark combination – but with a mintage that large there are quite a number of major die varieties, especially for this year when there were two different engravers making dies, as well as some rare transitional pieces between those two, which are amply illustrated in Smith’s article.
