French 1727 taler (ecu)


Recommended Posts

I think it's authentic. The obverse of these Louis XV écus is almost always poorly struck; it's not all wear. The reverse looks fine. 1727 T isn't a rare date and mint for this coin, it's one of the most common. Why counterfeit it? Official weight is 29.5 grams, but 28.5 may well be in the ballpark for a worn coin.
