Description Louis XVIII white metal Pattern 5 Francs 1815-B, Rouen mint, Maz-740var., MS63 NGC. By Michaut. Similar to Mazard 740, but struck in an unlisted metal using a slightly adapted obverse die that places the "F." in the signature below the bust much nearer to Louis' hair curls. A pleasing example with bright luster that adorns the protected areas and limited evidence of contact on either side. Several areas of bluntness are observed on the rim near 10:00. Realized $3,818.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
