Commentary


Buste absent de Feuardent et probablement spécifique à ce jeton. Feuardent en cite la légende et le référence 397 A, buste totalement différent du nôtre sur ses planches, certainement une erreur. Daté 1786 avec le 6 retourné. C’est cet exemplaire qui illustre le type dans le Guéant Prieur.

Those which deal more especially with practical applications are called agricultural councils..
