Br 690, “Boston Sou”. - CH LC-44A1. Copper. EF, but light overall granularity and green deposits on reverse. This imitative piece dates much later than the circulating bouquet sous, first being reported by McLachlan in 1885. Bob Willey's "The Boston Sou", CNJ, XIX.3 (March 1974) pp 91-92 remains a useful reference.

Note: this lot is part of The Richard Cooper Collection.
