Commentary


Sur cet exemplaire nous ne semblons pas avoir de globe à la pointe du cou, ni de palmette devant le portrait. Rubans de type 1. Malgré la rareté du type, nous n’avons pas relevé d’identité de coin pertinente. Ce type semble plus rare que ne le laissent supposer les ouvrages généraux. C’est la première fois que nous le proposons à la vente.
