1740-Paris Silver ECU King Louis XV NGC PF63

$33,000.00 USD

Paris mint, KM512.1, Dav-1331, Gad-322. A striking first year of issue Proof featuring a finely rendered portrait of a middle-aged Louis XV, hair tied back in long elegant curls, with a superb degree of detail in all facets of the design - a level of intricacy only made possible in this desirable Proof format. The planchet displays a soft silver and graphite tone, with a subtle pullaway effect at the legends and underlying reflectivity throughout. Extremely scarce, and likely to serve as an object of great pride in its next owner's cabinet.
