French Guyana (Cayenne) 2 sous coin incused with closed 'S・E' and 'P' countermark
Worn reverse of host coin
The 'cayenne stuiver' was a 2 sous coin minted in the West Indies (Colonie de Cayenne) by the French government, that was used on a lot of non-French islands in the region (including Saint Martin, Saint Bartholomew etc) as well.
According to Publication 15-12-1797 the 'Cayenne Stuivers' and similar coins, were countermarked with the letters 'SE'. Smith Pierre dit Flamand was sworn in to make the stamps. On 23-1-1798 a new publication warned for counterfeits and stating that only the old marked, old plain, old Danish and Dutch Stuivers remained of value. Later, in 1809, these coins were marked again, this time with a 'P'.
This coin (Scholten 1429b) can be distinguished from Scholten 1428 by the dott between 'S' and 'E'; and from Scholten 1429a by the open 'S' and 'E'.
