$5,000.00 USD


Bordeaux mint, KM470.10, Gad-339. Large palms variety. A piece retaining luminous crevices underlying the matte-like tone from centuries under the seas. The surfaces and type itself leads us to believe it was likely recovered from the 1725 Le Chameau shipwreck, although we have no documentation to support this.

Obverse: LUD · XV · D · G · FR · ET · NAV · REX. Young laureate head right.

Reverse: CHRS · REGN · VINC · IMP ·. Crowned double L monogram within palms.
