Z – Grenoble Mint - 1739-Z Billon Sous Marques. Vlack 221c. Rarity-6. Nearly Very Fine, the obverse of the full grade, the reverse a bit too weak at the top. The obverse legend is full, a few letters weak but visible, the reverse with just the RE of REX gone. Decent design detail on both sides. Medium pewter hue, with much original silvering still adhering to the surfaces. The obverse has some long striations across the center, while the few on the reverse are much smaller. Purchased from Bob Vlack privately, before his collection was sold – in a bit of irony he attributed the variety as Vlack 221 and sold it as a duplicate, but it is actually the 221c variation, which he ended up not having at all when his collection was auctioned. Ford also lacked this variety, and it may be that the rarity rating is too low. Accompanied by Vlack’s original typed envelope.
