Y – Bourges Mint - 1740-Y Billon Sous Marques. Vlack 219. Rarity-8. Very Good, the centers quite weak on either side, either from strike or late die states, with just a trace of the lower left part of the obverse design is visible, the rest mostly gone. The peripheral legend is strong for the grade, just a few reverse letters weak, but the date and mintmark are both there. Light rose color, the surfaces with a very light graininess to them that isn’t bad, and a small planchet flaw at the left on either side, which were there before the coin was struck. Overall, not a bad example at all, especially since there aren’t any real marks or damage from circulation. Another exceedingly rare variety, absent from both the Ford and Vlack sales. The chance to get any issue from the Bourges mint is rare – the change to get all three known dates (and three varieties not sold together in any other auction) is a chance the specialist would do well to take advantage of.
