This product of the Paris mint is common. The écu au bandeau is the most popular coin of the ancien regime of France among collectors. Alhéritière and Deswelle[2] reported 575 dates for this type in 2004; three more have been published since. An additional 215 dates may exist; records show they were minted but no one has found one. Four dates are known which the archives state should not exist. Of these only two dozen or so are classed as common (20 or more examples known), while 481 dates are known from five or fewer examples.

Recorded mintage: 55,137.
