Royal School of Surgery, Paris

Recommended Posts

Three different busts of Louis XVI , two different reverse dies. All dated 1775.


The first shows a mature bust Louis XVI obverse with the original building for the School of Surgery reverse



The second shows a mature bust of Louis XVI obverse but with different legend, with the School of Surgery and its extensions reverse



The third shows a youthful bust of Louis XVI and same reverse as the second.

Very nice Ian. Second and third look as though they might have used the same die for the reverse.
