Uncirculated France 1720-X 1/3 Ecu
Ex John J. Ford, Jr. Collection France. 1720-X Petit Louis d’argent (1/3 Ecu). Amiens Mint. Gad.305, Hod.2. MS-60 NGC. 125.2 grains. Easily the finest of the three 1720-X 1/3 ecu pieces offered in the now-legendary Ford holdings, though called “About Uncirculated” there. Lively luster endorses the steel-gray surfaces of this beautiful John Law issue, with a soft display of gold and pale blue iridescence throughout. Struck from a heavily clashed and breaking obverse die, with a portion of the date obscured as a result. Here is a dynamic coin wherein its numerical grade matters little – it is an impressively lovely and fine coin at Choice AU or Mint State, as a case can readily be made for either distinction.
From Stack’s sale of the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection, Part XIII, January, 2006, lot 357; ex Richard Margolis, May, 1994.
