Host Coin of Charles X (proclaimed King 1589-1590), Vlack 1j Type - 1640 countermark on a 1593-X [Amiens Mint] Charles X Douzain aux Deux C, 1st type, Ciani 1491, Duplessy 1180a, Sombart 4412, another. Fine or slightly better, weakened more by a large planchet crack that was there before the piece was struck than by actual wear. About half the legend visible on either side, including the last digit of the date and the X mintmark at the base of the obverse – since this type was struck only from 1590-5 the final digit is all that is needed. An extremely rare subtype within the 1640 countermark series, this one featuring TWO countermarks, both on the obverse, and both quite strong. Only a handful of specimens for the entire 1640 issue are known with multiple countermarks, and this one is likely unique on this host coin type.
