1692-E [Tours Mint] Recoined Sol de 15 Deniers, Gadoury 91. Very Fine, overstruck on an earlier douzain, though without the 1640 countermark. Generally well-struck, the legends mostly full, a few stray letters weaker but visible, as is the date, while the mintmark is bold. Nice later die state, a large die break visible to the left of the shield. Struck on a remarkably full planchet without any edge splits. UNLISTED date and mintmark in Gadoury as an overstruck issue without the countermark, though he does list is as overstruck on coins with the countermark (this date and mint is unknown on virgin planchets). Gadoury does give some hint in the listings of his type 91 – after the mintage figures the letters “rf” indicate the issue was overstruck (réforme), while the letters “fn” indicate the mintage was on a new planchet (flan neuf). Rare.
