1722-K [Bordeaux Mint] John Law Half Sol. Nearly Very Fine, probably of the full grade as the legends are all sharp, including the date and mintmark, and just some characteristic weakness on the obverse bust. Very dark russet, the surfaces with some light roughness but not bad. A few ancient scrapes at the center reverse the only noticeable defect from circulation. Bordeaux is one of the unusually limited mints for the John Law copper series – it struck only the Half Sol, and only in this year and 1723. Smith notes 15 examples of this date and mint in his survey, but it does not seem to show up with any sort of frequency in the market.
