French jetons of the period are very numerous and I have never seen a complete catalog or anything even nearly complete. I have a box of them someplace that I bought for next to nothing and have seen only one or two in any catalog. Prices are never given and rarity is usually unknown. The metal used is key to any value - brass and copper examples are usually priced under $20 but silver examples exist and can get very pricey. I enjoy looking at them to get a feel for engraving techniques used at different times. The French were ahead of most countries in terms of medallic arts until the 19th century.

My book on Counterfeit Portrait 8Rs is available from Amazon http://ccfgo.com/TheUnrealReales or from me directly if you want it signed.

I'm curious if you have ever seen this exact one anywhere? I found several/many similar ones using the keywords on it, but could never find this exact coin. ( I didn't realize it actually said Jeton on the label of the coin. I couldn't make out what it was )

CoinNoob, the lettering on the front of this token says "LOUIS XIV ROY DE FR ET NAV," or Louis XIV, King of France and Navarre.

The reverse says PAX OMNIBUS (Peace to All).

You can find examples is worse condition that have sold for $10-15 (27 zloty = $8): https://archiwum.allegro.pl/oferta/...3340301.html

Yours would be worth more due to the condition.

That's excellent... I was not able to find the exact coin. Glad you did.

I do think the condition would be very similar though, looking closely. But I'm still happy you found it. Thank you.
