Breen 260 variety, estimated by us to be at least Rarity-5+.
An underappreciated type, but an even more underrated issue bearing this date and mint. The 1721-B Rouen mint issue is perhaps 50 times rarer than the typical Rochelle ‘H’ mint coins normally seen.
Our research reveals just a handful of decent examples of this issue trading publically in the last 25 years, including this piece, a similar example in Stack’s 1988 Oechsner sale, a slightly more worn example in Stack’s 1976 Laird Park collection and a few in minor auctions.
Ex-Stack’s sale of the John Roper Collection, December 1983, Lot #190.
