This specimen was lot 1155 in Jean Elsen sale 136 (Brussels, March 2018), where it sold for €145 (about US$213 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,

This type was struck 1833-63 at the Brussels mint in numerous varieties; despite the large mintage, this date is scarce in nice condition.
