Breen 701 variety.
The finest RF counterstamped example of this type we have seen or traced in our extensive colonial census data.
Very choice chocolate brown, with hard glossy surfaces well struck on a near perfect planchet. The RF counterstamp is crisp and well centered and exhibits little if any wear.
The RF counterstamped pieces are far more common than the uncounterstamped pieces in low grade, but at the AU level and higher these RF coins are legitimately rare.
Ex Stack’s January 2006 sale of the John J. Ford Collection, lot #28.
