Lustrous, well struck, French Indo-China 1920 10 Centimes, graded PCGS MS64. Despite its mintage of 10 million pieces, this date is difficult to find, because most of those struck were withdrawn from circulation and destroyed.
This may have been related to the extremely low silver fineness of the 1920 10 Centimes, which was 0.400, and which was NOT engraved on the reverse legend. The years 1898 to 1919 had a fineness of 0.835, and the years 1921 to 1930 had a fineness of 0.680. The 1920 20 Centimes also had a fineness of 0.400. Mostly white, with just a hint of golden tone. Not as toned as the PCGS photo makes it appear.
