I don't have any questions. I just wanted to share with the forum participants my token that my mother brought me when she was in Paris. After the fire in the cathedral, she became something significant.

Nice medallion.

These are available from the Cathedral shop online, and help raise money towards the restoration of the Cathedral after the fire...

34mm brass medallions like this are very popular in France and extensively collected. They are available at many tourist attractions and are much more common than the squashed pennies that are more prevalent in the USA.

My token purchased before the fire. But I think that the money still went to the treasury of the cathedral and, perhaps, was even spent later on restoration.

P.S. Mom was in Paris in April 2017.
