France H3064-29005d.jpg

This specimen was part of lot 29005 in Heritage sale 3064 (Chicago, April 2018), which sold for $240. The catalog description[2] noted, "Pair of Louis XIV 15 Deniers ("1/2 Mousquetaires"), ...2) 1713-AA VF, Metz mint. Surfaces quite rough and granular. Ex. John Ford collection (Stack's Ford XIII sale, Jan. 2006, lot 33). From the Doug Robins Collection of Canadian Tokens." This obscure type was struck 1711-13 only at Metz. It was called the XV deniers aux 2 L couronnés. Altho sold as part of a collection of Canadian tokens, and it's possible some circulated there, the vast majority remained in France.

Recorded mintage: unknown[1].

Specification: 1.22 g, .208 fine silver, 18.5 mm diameter, plain edge, designed by Norbert Roéttiers.

Catalog reference: Dr/4 no. 774, Dr/2 no. 476, KM 401, Gad-95, Vlack-14 type.
