Hi, if you post pictures to the Exonumia section someone will probably be able to help. The French produced quite a few jetons over ther years... :ninja:

You have a French coin struck at Bayonne. I'm guessing an ecu or demi-ecu, but I don't really know what size it is from the photograph. I'm guessing it is at that end of the size scale since you called it a jeton.

I like these big silver pieces. In this series you tend to find them mostly with weak center obverse strikes and/or unusual wear in the center... Perhaps they circulated more than later écus, like the Louis XV écu au bandeau and the Louis XVI écu aux lauriers, which tend to show up with less wear.
