Nice pepactonius. What are the figures on the shield?

Got any Henri IV? I'll dig out something and post it if you don't.

Apparently this is called "ermine" in heraldry. The figures would be black on a white background, and they are supposed to be black otter tails.

Looks like I have a few Henry IV coins, but yours are probably better, so go ahead and post them.

King Louis-Philippe did much to assist the restoration of Notre-Dame Cathedral in the 19th century. Here he is on an 1831 5-franc coin, minted in Bordeaux (K):

Henri IV demi franc, 1606 Angers mint




Henri IV double tournois, 1593 La Rochelle mint




Both of these coins are full weight, so any clipping would be weight adjustment.
