Ponterio sale 173, lot 1259
France 1857A 10 centimes rev Ponterio 173-1259.jpg

This specimen was lot 1259 in Ponterio sale 173 (New York, January 2013), where it sold for $881. The catalog description[1] noted, "FRANCE. Proof 10 Centimes Struck in Bronze, 1857-A. PCGS PROOF-66 BN Secure Holder." 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") and Lyon ("D"). The 1857-A from Paris is a somewhat better date but proofs are rare. The total production for the series is about 259 million. All the bronze ten centimes pieces were demonetized in 1935 but by then were worthless.

Recorded mintage: 2,902,500.

Specification: 10 g, bronze, 30 mm diameter, plain edge, designed by Jean-Jacques Barré (1793-1855).

Catalog reference: F.133/39, KM-771.1; Gad-248; VG-3502.
