This dime-sized coin was struck at Paris under the régime of Napoleon III (1852-70). It is a slightly better date of a type struck 1853-63. This type is distinguished from the later type (F.188) of 1864-69 by the absence of a laurel wreath on the emperor's head. It was demonetized in [[France]] in 1869. The catalog<sup>[3]</sup> notes 16 dates for the type, some very rare. This date is priced about 33% more than the commonest date (1858A).
