1789 US Colonial New France 2Sou Countermark ToB Tobago
Description:

1789 US Colonial New France 2 Sou Copper coin countermarked counterstamped ToB Tobago French West Indies

The host coin is low grade but the countermark is strong.  These coins are evaluated, graded by the countermark, not the undertype.

These coins circulated in the 13 US Colonies with the rum trade between the Colonies and the West Indies.

Also, the British and French merchant marine ships traded with the West Indies AND the 13 Colonies

Vlack #442 on page 154 of An Illustrated Catalogue of the French Billon Coinage In the Americas.  Listed by Robert Vlack as a Rarity-2.

Research indicates that very few New France countermarked Colonial coins, intended for trade with the Americas, have surfaced for sale at numismatic auction houses.  A collection comes up for sale once every 10 or 20 years, literally.

Extremely undervalued, in my humble opinion.

Satisfaction guaranteed.
