France 1824M quart franc rev DSLR.jpg

This tiny coin was struck at Toulouse under the régime of king Louis XVIII (1814-24). It is from a type struck for France 1817-24. Unlike Napoleonic quarter francs, which are divided among six types, all quarter francs of this reign are of this type, which is fairly common. The catalog[1] notes 35 dates for the type, some very rare, and notes some specimens of this date are known with medal rotation. This issue is rare, the rarest for 1824.

Recorded mintage: 7,762[1].

Specification: 1.25 g, .900 fine silver, 15 mm diameter, plain edge.

Catalog reference: F.163/34, KM 714.
