Philippe, Duc d'Orleans. The Avenger of Fraud, 1716. B-unlisted, B-unlisted. Obverse signed DU VIVIER....Philippe, Duc d'Orleans. The Avenger of Fraud, 1716. B-unlisted, B-unlisted. Obverse signed DU VIVIER. in field below bust; reverse signed D.V. (Du Vivier) in right field. Yellow bronze. 41.7 mm. 517.3 gns. Obverse: Bust of the Regent. PHILIPPUS DUX AURELIANENS. FR. ET NAV. REGENS. Reverse: Hercules and the thief Cacus (the die of B.125). The obverse in neither Betts and showing several rim breaks, the reverse the same die seen on the preceding two but in an earlier state. Choice Extremely Fine. Flat rims 3.1 - 3.4 mm. thick, flat plain edge. It is possible that this was the obverse originally meant to go with the Hercules reverse since the Regent was more likely to have commanded the Chambre's flattery in 1716 than young Louis XV.

Ex A.H. Baldwin & Sons, Ltd. on July 2, 1971.
