Crowned lion, rampant to the left, surrounded by legend and an outer ring of pearls.
Lettering: L VSEN BOR
Small cross patted in the field, surrounded by the legend between two rings of pearls.
A piece of the highest rarity, only one known copy that was part of the find of Sionvillers (near Nancy) in 1873. Excellent preserved in the cabinet of the medals of Brussels.
Serrure, one of the first numismatists to have analyzed this piece, had placed it among the pieces of Henry VI.
It contrasted with the rest of the coins, forged in a completely different model. This error was rectified by M. Alvin, who classifies this coin as Henri V's coin (BV, pp. 38-39)
- The illustrations on this sheet come from the article by N. M. Fréd. Alvin, published in 1893 in the RBN, vol. XLIX, p. 478
