France 1824L quart franc rev JElsen 103-1053.jpg
This specimen is lot 1053 in Jean Elsen sale 103 (Brussels, December 2009), where it sold for 85 euro. The catalog description[1] noted,
"FRANCE, Louis XVIII, seconde restauration (1815-1824), AR quart de franc, 1824 L, Bayonne. Très Beau" (France, Louis XVIII, second restoration (1815-24), silver quarter franc, 1824-L, Bayonne mint, Very Fine).
The date is rare but not a key like the 1818-W; Le Franc[3] does not report the number known but it's likely to be less than ten.

Recorded mintage: 31,000[2], 26,042[3].

Specification: 1.25 g, .900 fine silver, 15 mm diameter, plain edge, designed by Auguste Michaut.

Catalog reference: F.163/33, Gadoury 352, KM 714.6.
