France 1853B 2 centimes rev DSLR.jpg

The regime of Napoleon III finally carried out plans developed during the 1840's to melt down and remint all the old copper circulating in France, some of it dating back to before the Revolution of 1789. Several branch mints were reopened for this purpose. The existing mints were Paris ("A"), Strasbourg ("BB") and Bordeaux ("K"); the reopened mints were Lille ("W"), Marseilles ("MA"), Rouen ("B", shown here) and Lyon ("D"). The two centimes is the scarcest of the bronze denominations of Napoleon III, tho it is not rare.

Recorded mintage: 538,580[1], a better date.

Specification: 2 g, bronze, 20 mm diameter, plain edge.

Catalog reference: F.107/2, KM-776.2; Gad-103.
