Gem Proof gold 100 Francs EssaiNapoleon III gold Essai 100 Francs 1862 E, Laureate head of Napoleon III right, E/BARRE below / Crowned and mantled arms of France with date and value, plain edge, Mazard-1603 (R4), Gadoury 1136, Proof 65 Cameo NGC. Basically flawless, and a grade of 67, or 68, would not cause undue concern for this phenomenal example. Deeply mirrored fields contrast sharply with the frosted devices. The strike is perfection, and even close examination reveals no mentionable flaws. Only a tiny number of these Essai 100 Francs were produced in gold, and this is the first example we have offered.
