1789 Colonial 2Sous Countermark ToB Tobago unlist Vlack
Description:

1789 US Colonial America 2 Sous Cayenne New France Copper Coin Countermarked Counterstamped ToB Tobago with low "O" or circle down and below the "T." 

In Robert Vlack's 2004 An Illustrated Catalogue of the French Billon Coinage in the Americas, pages 153 to 156, he shows his Vlack variety #442 as a 1789 Caynee 2 Sous Countermarked ToB with the O or circle below and equidistant fromthe T and the B.

Vlack #443 shows a Crowned C Stampee Copper Countermarked ToB with the low "O" or circle down and below the T.

This coin has the same counterstamp as Vlack #443 yet is struck on a 1789 Cayenne 2 Sous Copper like Vlack #442.

In Victor Gadoury and Georges Cousinie's Monnaies Coloniales Francaises, pages 447 and 448, Tobago aka Tabago countermarks are pictured and described but this countermark is NOT listed.

It is possible but not certain that this coin may be a contemporary CFT.

You are looking at a countermarked coin NOT listed in Vlack and NOT mentioned by Pridmore NOR Gadoury.

In any case, it is possible but not certain that this coin is a contemporary CFT.

Very rare coin, probably a Rarity- 8.
