NOTE: this coin comes in two varieties:
- KM#900.1 heavy(3,5gr) - thick flan
- KM#900.2 light (3.0gr) - thin flan
The change in weight happen by application of a decree of 26 July 1943. The 2 varieties exist only for the year 1943 (from the french book "the Franc IX"). The World Coins is wrong when mentioning the 2 varieties for 1941 and 1942.
Some Numista members found coins of 3,30-3,35gr for 1941 they have to be considered as heavy even if their weight is not clearly heavy.
