X – Amiens Mint - 1739-X Billon Sous Marques. Vlack 214a. Rarity-6. This is the Bob Vlack coin, and appeared as Lot 5137 of the sale of his collection where it was described as “Technically Extremely Fine. A nice example of this scarcer variety with pale silver color, traces of luster, and a good strike everywhere save one section on the rims.” In examining the coin we think it a full AU, as EF’s just do not have this kind of luster and eye appeal. Definitely one of the finer known examples of a very scarce variety (Ford’s was just VF), with the added bonus of a provenance to the man who literally wrote the book on the series. Accompanied by Vlack’s original typed envelope and lot ticket from the auction.
