Having a sort out.

The French Coin I think is Louis 14 just before his death.

The other copper coin dated 1826 has me stymied.

Thanks.

Happy Hunting.

1 ducet Austrian franz 1st...but be warned there are fakes/copies (tokens) readers digest for example produced replicas of the coin as a part of a replica coin collection for readers to collect

it seems the original would have been gold....so I would assume yours is a replica
