Extremely rare type, missing from standard references. The rose at the beginning of legends on obverse and reverse is the mint mark of Troyes, this mint mark has been assigned to Troyes under Henri VI.
This type has to be related to the Florette listed under number 466bisA of Duplessy which has the same specifics, i.e. the rose and lilia at the center of reverse. It corresponds to a special issue at Troyes after 10 July 1429 where Jeanne d’Arc freed the town from the English and permitted Charles VII to be enthroned at Reims. An example with a very high historical interest, with a remarkable quality and unique to day!
