from Jean Elsen sale 137, lot 1019
This specimen was lot 1019 in Jean Elsen sale 137 (Brussels, June 2018), where it sold for €110 (about US$153 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[2] noted,
"FRANCE, Royaume, Louis XIV (1643-1715), AR 44 sols, 1713A, Paris. Type de Strasbourg. D/ B. à d., cuirassé à l'antique. R/ Ecu de France couronné. . Nettoyé. Légères traces de corrosion. presque Très Beau. (kingdom of France, Louis XIV, 1643-1715, silver 44 sols of 1713, Paris mint, Strasbourg type. Obverse: armored bust right; reverse: crowned arms of France. Cleaned, traces of corrosion, about very fine.)"
Droulers lists this as a 48 sols but it is the same weight as the Strasbourg 44 sols issued 1709-13. Its value was lowered to 36 sols in October 1714. It was minted at Paris 1713-14 and demonetized soon after. It was likely struck for circulation in Germany.

Recorded mintage: unknown[1].
