This specimen was lot 891 in Jean Elsen sale 118 (Brussels, September 2013), where it sold for €470 (about US$741 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"BOUILLON ET SEDAN, Henri de la Tour d'Auvergne (1591-1623), AR écu de 30 sols, 1613, Sedan. Droit: Aigle éployée portant l'écu au sanglier sur la poitrine. En dessous, 1613-XXX.

The SCWC lists this duchy under French states as the area was annexed by Louis XIV in 1678 and permanently added to France but we list this with the Bishopric of Liege which had suzerainty in the early 1600's.
