This tiny coin was struck at Paris under the régime of king Louis Philippe of France (1830-48). It is a common date of a type struck 1831-45. All quarter francs of this reign are of this type, which is common. It was replaced in 1845 by a twenty-five centimes piece (F.167) and demonetized in 1852. The catalog[1] notes 108 dates for the type, some very rare.
