France 1824A quart franc rev DSLR.jpg

The first specimen was lot 373 in Classical Numismatic Group's sale of the Lissner Collection (Chicago, August 2014), where it sold for $332.75. The catalog description[1] noted, "FRANCE, Royal (Restored). Louis XVIII. 1814-1824. AR Quart franc. Paris mint; différents: initials/anchor. Nicolas-Pierre Tiolier, engraver general. Jean-Pierre Collot, director. Dated 1824 A. In NGC encapsulation graded MS 65. Gem toned uncirculated with very nice patina. Highest graded for the date and only a few higher for the type." This date is scarce but not a key like the 1818-W; Le Franc[2] priced this about 50% more than the common 1817-A.

Recorded mintage: 82,622[2].

Specification: 1.25 g, .900 fine silver, 15 mm diameter, reeded edge. Designed by Auguste François Michaut, 1786-1879. This specimen is Ø15 mm, 1.24 g, 6h axis.

Catalog reference: VG 352; KM 714.1, F.163/31.
