ISLE DE FRANCE. 10 Livres, 1810. PCGS AU-55.
KM-1; Lec-14. Reported mintage of 200,000 pieces according to Lecompte, but RAREin this high quality. Struck without a plug and far better detailed than most survivors with nearly complete eagle feathers and a fully legible "DIX LIVRES" in the reverse centers. Attractive deep old mottled tone adds to this piece's overall charm.
Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000.
