The specimen shown is a 33 sols de Strasbourg struck at that town during the reign of Louis XIV. It was lot 1402 in CGB sale 31 (Paris, June 2007). The type was issued 1705-08 from that mint in fairly large numbers but is today rare. Droulers[1] notes that most of the survivors were found in Wurttemberg and Baden, not France, suggesting that it was struck for circulation in Germany.
