Ces demi-daldres ont été produits à l’aide de rouleaux et présentent souvent un aspect incurvé. Les avers de ces monnaies sont identiques pour les années 1641, 1642, 1643 et 1644 car issus du même rouleau qui présente de nombreuses cassures en 1644. Les revers pour les demi-daldres de 1641, 1642, 1643, 1644 et 1645 sont également issus d’un seul et même rouleau dont le millésime a été regravé à plusieurs reprises, le graveur retouchant même parfois certains détails, en rajoutant des plumes à l’aigle ou en élargissant les colonnes (Cf. Carvalho, Clairand, Kind, " Considérations techniques sur les demi-daldres de Besançon frappés entre 1641 et 1645 ", BSFN, janvier 1999, p. 8-12 ).

Father's side, he was the grand-son of Maximilian I of Habsburg and the maternal side, grand-son of the Catholic Monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabella. He became ruler of the Netherlands to the death of his father in 1506, when he was only 6 years. A period of regency was exercised by his aunt Margaret of Austria until his emancipation to the States General January 5, 1515. January 23, 1516, his maternal grandfather died and he ascended the throne of Spain under the name of Charles I.. After the death of Maximilian I, Charles was elected Holy Roman Emperor June 28, 1519, under the name of Charles V. The election was originally a long conflict that opposed the king of France Francis. Charles V abdicated October 25, 1555 of its possessions in the Netherlands and 16 January 1556 of its Spanish possessions. He died September 21, 1558 in the monastery of San Yuste Jeromino.
