MORE ON THE FRENCH FIVE FRANCS OF NAPOLEON

Last week Granvyl Hulse asked:

Is there anyone in our E-Sylum group that is knowledgeable about French five francs of Napoleon?

Georges Sion writes:

I just joined the E-Sylum, and wanted to reply to Granvyl Hulse' query about his 5 Francs from Napoléon. Looking in the Le Franc reference book for this coinage, I found that 34,557 coins were actually struck (or, better, recorded) for AN 12 in the B (Rouen) mint.

The site http://www.lefranc.net records the known best specimen of every French modern coin.

Michel Prieur writes:

In our book LE FRANC it catalogs for 3000 Euros, roughly 4500 USD, in AU 58 condition (no better example seen). Of course, it is a very rare coin and it might go for more, or less, in an auction. We never had the opportunity to offer this coin in one of our auctions.
