Host Coin of Charles IX (ruled 1560-1574), Vlack 1h Type - 1640 countermark on a 1573-G [Poitiers Mint] Charles IX Douzain aux Deux C Couronnes, Ciani 1384, Duplessy 1089, Sombart 4394. Nearly Very Fine, a well struck host coin, with a bold countermark on the obverse. A few stray letters weak in the peripheral legends, as are the first three digits of the date – but this issue was struck only from 1572-5, so having the last digit partially visible is enough to securely place the coin; the G mintmark is stronger at the base of the shield on the obverse. A very scarce host coin in its own right, each of the 5 known date and mintmark combinations with very small mintages for the era.
