Host Coin of Henri IV (ruled 1590-1610), Vlack 1k Type - 1640 countermark on a 1595-Z [Grenoble Mint] Henri IV Douzain du Dauphine, 2nd type, Ciani 1564, Duplessy 1257, Sombart 4442. Very Fine, on a clipped planchet which cuts off about one-third of the legends on either side, though the date is all there – and that area is doubled as well. Sharp design detail, the obverse shield showing most of the dolphins there, the ones on the reverse weaker. The countermark is applied to the reverse and was struck with great force, with the coin now cup-shaped and visually striking as such. Medium silver gray with some maroon specks on either side. This type was only struck at this mint, and only from 1593-7, though most years are relatively available as a host coin (though rarer with a 1640 countermark); the shape of the coin giving it some dramatic eye appeal.
