Not my area but I can say it's a beauty. Hope someone comes along soon with some good information for you.

I've never seen exactly this type of medieval jeton in France, but I did find a link showing it selling for a pretty penny, so it must be rare. The reverse legend is DES COMPTES LE ROY, perhaps a precursor to the French series Les comptes du roi. Looks beautiful!

One of the principals in Pegasi is a specialist in early French jetons as a personal collecting theme. He rarely places bargain prices on them since he knows what they are and how scarce the are.
