Comments

NOTE: different types of size in design exist for the French type:
Type A: smaller letters and crown, 'CENTIMES' far from rim
Type B: very large letters and crown, 'CENTIMES' touching rim

According to Krause type B versions where the word 'CENTIMES' touches the edge (like the French type) exist. It is catalogued as KM# 147.2. This needs to be confirmed.
