Host Coin of Henri II (ruled 1547-1559), Vlack 1g Type - 1640 countermark on a 1552-R [Sainte-Andre de Villeneuve-les-Avignon Mint] Henri II Douzain aux Croissants, Ciani 1305, Duplessy 997, Sombart 4380. Fine or so, the peripheral legends mostly complete, though some letters are weaker than others; the design detail is as expected for the grade, with a little flattening from the countermark which is prominently stamped on the obverse. A few light circulation marks, the obverse with a slightly darker area of toning at the bottom. A scarcer mint, Sombart was not able to locate any mintage figures for this issue, one of only two mints for the year without this detail.
