Comments

Only 10 & 25 Francs were simultaneously issued for circulation in French West Africa and Togo.
Hence, George S. Cuhaj (Krause Publications) has given distinct numbering as follows:
French West Africa: KM# 8
Togo: KM#A 8
Reason: Togo became an autonomous republic within French union.
Hence, the 2 different references in Numista ("essai" excluded).
Furthermore, the World Coins gives the reference (KM#) E6 to the "essai".
