Louis XIV - Capture of Tornai and Courtrai


Recommended Posts

This 89mm medal from the Paris mint is of much later vintage than the 1667 events it commemorates. I'm not sure what the edge marking is but perhaps someone familiar with this type of metal would know.

The assay mark (or `poinçon' as the french call it) is the cornucopia aka `horn of plenty', which indicates that the piece was minted at Paris Mint sometime after 1880, probably early 1900's. It's a nice high quality piece.
