    Card Money 15 Sols 1757

    French Regime Card Money 15 Sols 1757
    A very rare denomination as referenced by McLachlan's work on Card Money, The Canadian Card Money, 1910. His chart shows 5 of the 15 Sol denominated cards with just one from the 1757 issue, likely this piece. This piece appeared in a Jeffrey Hoare auction as lot 1083 way back in 1998. At that time it realized the princely sum of $15,400. The note is signed by De Villars (clerk of the treasury) at top. At bottom is a "B" for the Intendent, Bigot. In the middle is the written denomination "Quinze Sols". There are two official embossed seals, the first with three fleur-de-lis, and the second with eight divisions of the oval which resemble spokes. The grade appears to be Very Fine with some light rust present from staple holes and light staining on the back. Certainly, a piece for the advanced specialist.
