Obverse: (lis mm) hЄИRICVS : DЄI : GRA : FRACORV : ? : AGLIЄ : RЄX, the Virgin Mary standing behind the arms of France facing the Archangel Gabriel standing behind the quartered arms of France and England, handing her a scroll bearing AVЄ beneath the light of God; a mullet beneath the "R" of "REX".

A rare variety of this issue featuring mullets beneath the third-to-last letters in the legends. The luster is soft, but the strike is excellent.
