The strike is bold and both sides exhibit moderate hairlines and light handling marks. An extremely rare issue, with only 2-3 pieces sold in the last 35 years. The only record that we have in this period is the example in the Vinchon sale of 1978 estimated at 80,000-90,000 French Francs (approximately  $16,000-$18,000).
