The specimen shown is a demi-écu à la mèche longue struck at Angers during the reign of Louis XIV of France. It was from a recent William Rosenblum sale (Littleton, CO, February 2012), where it sold for $240. Droulers[1] prices this date about 80% more than the common 1655-A. The Angers mint closed in 1661.

Recorded mintage: 23,289[1].

Specification: 13.72 g, .917 fine silver, 31-32 mm diameter, plain edge, designed by Jean Warin.

Catalog reference: Dr/4 no. 527, Dr/2 no. 301, KM 164.
