I kind of feel bad for stealing this...

But not really. ;) Got it for $15, and Krause lists it at $65. As many of you know, I am working on a French colonial set, starting in the 20th century. I am one coin shy of being done with Morocco, one coin shy of finishing Madagascar, and now only three coins short of Cameroon! Yippee, things are going quite nicely. Now I need to decide which to colony to focus on next...

PS: I had to mention that I love the Marianne bust on the French & colonies coins...what a good idea for a collection


I am really a fan of the design as well, both the 1940s/50s design that you pictured and the earlier design that I pictured. I am not nearly as big a fan of the 1943 series of "Free French" coinage, with a rooster. They are very difficult to find in nice shape, attractive, well struck, and problem free.


Yes, I do have both of the St Pierre & Miquelon coins, I bought them together as well (it's easier to buy them together than it is to find them separately, or so it seems on Ebay). You got a two for one on the ships thing with that coin, though, it has ships on the obverse and reverse!
