Jean Elsen sale 139, lot 875
This specimen was lot 875 in Jean Elsen sale 139 (Brussels, December 2018), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted,
"FRANCE, Royaume, Louis XV (1715-1774), AV double louis d'or mirliton, 1723A, Paris. D/ B. nu, lauré à d. R/ Entre deux palmes, deux L entrelacés sous une couronne. Extrêmement rare Légèrement paillé. Très Beau à Superbe. (kingdom of France, Louis XV, 1715-74, gold double Louis Mirliton of 1723, Paris mint. Obverse: laureate bust right; reverse: two interlaced L's between two palm fronds, crown above. Extremely rare, lightly polished, Very Fine - Extremely Fine.)"
As an issue, this double louis d'or Mirliton type was struck only at the Paris mint between 1723 and 1724. The salvage of the wreck of the French troopship Le Chameau in 1965 recovered hundreds of the louis d'or Mirliton, but none were of the demi-louis or double louis denominations. No more double Louis d'or were struck until 1742.
