G'day all!
I have this French Equatorial African 1 franc coin, and when I looked closer it seems like F in AFRIQUE is closed between the bars, and it definately is different from the F in FRANÇAISE. I don't know if this is the case on all coins or not.

Here's the F in FRANÇAISE


Here's the F in AFRIQUE


Thanks!

I have one to look at. it is in poor condition compared to yours, but it does have the feature you are looking at.

​So I guess that's how it's supposed to be, then. Cheers!
