For this coin the be an 'essai', it is either an off metal strike (usually proof), or standard metal piedfort.
In any case, these sorts of coins were never intended for circulation, and thus should always be found in MS++ condition.

Standard metal piedforts and usually struck in quantities of 100 to 1000, the off metal strikes scarcer. Piedfort off metal strikes in silver or gold are rare, usually numbering at around five to ten examples only.

MS-64.

Special strikes as mentioned above of this period are usually struck at the Paris mint.

For the essai coin, should it not have Arabic script to the right of the zero.



Edit..

Looking at it in different lighting and enlarged.
It looks like there might be someting there.
