Kunker sale 264, lot 3084
This specimen was lot 3084 in Künker sale 264 (Osnabrück, June 2015), where it sold for €1,700 (about US$2,196 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"KÖNIGREICH Louis XV, 1715-1774. Louis d'or "mirliton" 1723, D, Lyon. Mit kurzen Palmzweigen in der Rückseitendarstellung. GOLD. Vorzüglich. (kingdom of France, Louis XV, 1715-74, gold louis "mirliton" of 1723, Lyon mint, with short palm branches. Extremely fine.)"
The specimen shown is a louis d'or Mirliton, palmes courtes, struck at the Lyon mint (mintmark "D") during the minority of king Louis XV. This type was struck 1723 only but from twenty-seven mints. It would be extremely rare but for a quantity recovered in 1965 from the wreck of Le Chameau, a French troopship discovered off the coast of Nova Scotia. This type was superseded by the louis d'or Mirliton, palmes longues, struck 1723-25. That coin in turn was superseded by the louis d'or aux lunettes, struck 1726-40.

Recorded mintage: 2,980.

Specification: 6.52 g, .917 fine gold, corded edge, 22-23 mm diameter, this specimen 6.48 g.

Catalog reference: Duplessy 1638 A; Fr-459; Gadoury 338, Dr/4 no. 798, Dr/2 no. 537, KM 468.6.
