Host Coin of Charles X (proclaimed King 1589-1590), Vlack 1j Type - 1640 countermark on a 1593-R [Marseille Mint] Charles X Douzain aux Deux C, 1st type, Ciani 1492, Duplessy 1181, Sombart 4413. Nearly Very Fine, the strike mostly sharp, with all but a few letters in the legend visible and mostly strong, including the date and mintmark. Medium golden tone, the lower half of the obverse with a darker russet hue and just one small edge split. The countermark is on the reverse and is sharp. A scarce mint, and though Sombart was not able to find a reported mintage he does note only 3 examples seen for this year and mint (Marseille struck this issue from 1592-6 inclusive, the only mint to strike the final two years, and there are no mintage figures for any dates from this mint); presumably quite rare with a 1640 countermark.
