Description:
Louis XV 1/4 ecu aux 3 couronnes 1715A, Young bust right/Three crowns in a triangle with fleur-de-lis in the angles, Gad-301, C-2094, Dup-1650, KM-410.1, XF. The 1/4 ecu with 3 Crowns of Louis XV is the King of regular issue silver French silver coins. It is known from two different mints, Paris and Aix-en-Provence. This piece is only the second example to appear at public auction in the last 70 years. A landmark offering!
The following are the known examples: 1715-A Paris, Mintage 3,620 pieces (1) The 1875 Regnault Sale. (2) 1902 The Meyer Collection (Rollin -Feuardent). (3) 1905 Maison Platt price list XF. (4) 1910 jean du Lac Collection, cataloged as FDC, 1933 Victor Guilloteau Collection, cataloged as FDC, 1993 Claouet Collection (Credit de la Bourse lot 790, where it realized 224,400 FF which was $42,750 dollars at the time). (5) 1930 Couturier Collection (Ciani) rim repaired. (6) Biblioteque National. (7) Lasser Collection, now property of Colonial Williamsburg Museum, XF. (8) An Almost Unc. example which traded hands privately in September 2003 in Paris. (9) The Specimen offered here. 1715-&, Aix-en-Provence, Mintage unknown (10) 1867 Greau Collection (Hoffman). (11) Mint Museum of Marseille. Some of the above information taken from the Gadoury 1986 edition of Monnaies Royale Francaises.
It is quite possible that there is duplication in this list. For example, it is likely that either specimen one or two, or both, are specimen four. There could be as few as seven examples of the type, or possibly the full 11 examples as listed.
