Best French Colonies reference

Recommended Posts

I have a 10 centime 1843A bronze coin of the French Colonies. Krause lists mint state coins, but I believe my coin is a proof. It seems thicker than the coins I have seen, and it has proof fields. It is in pristine condition.

 

Can anyone recommend a reference that would show whether proof examples of this coin exist as well as suggest a value for a proof example. It is not an essai, or at least I don't think it is as it does not have the word "essai" on the coin.

 

Thanks,

Marv Finnley

The Standard Catalog of World Coins (2004-4th edition) does list a proof for 1843 with a value of $450. You say that Lecompte does NOT list a proof for that date?
