KM-478.1 variety, Louis XV type.  Struck at the Paris mint.

Just acquired by us in Europe, this is an example of a rare half dollar-sized issue which definitively saw circulation in the French Colonies of North America.

How do we know?  Because in 1965 examples of this type were recovered from the wreck of the Le Chameau, a French supply ship which sank off the coast of Nova Scotia in 1725 while en route to North America.

And while those coins were badly degraded by a couple of hundred years of exposure to seawater, this one is a lovely original Choice AU+ with delicate golden toning in the devices.
