    BIG OLD FRENCH SILVER (1721)

    Biggest, Oldest Silver French Coin, and what a surprise.

    EDIT; Just figured out what appears to be damage on the obverse is not, turns out it is an overstrike of a previous (1720) type and you should be able to see it quite well in the zoomed pic.

    EDIT added a dirty pic.
    Here's a dirty pic., a frame taken from the video clip.
    and the whole "find" story is on page 2 or 3.

    Don't see those often, from the pics thinking maybe 1/3 Ecu. Think that's what Romeo's coin was too.

    You'll have a hard time ever topping this year for silver!

    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."
