Large Denomination vs. Small Denomination Patterns by Congo Kid

Recent discovery in elephant patterns.


I have been collecting Belgian Congo coins for many years and discovered some of the 1 franc elephant patterns several years ago. But more recently I discovered that there are some varieties in these elephant coins. The obverses have the same elephant design. However some sport the "PATT" above the elephant and some do not. But the reverses are markedly different as you can see by the photo of the two side by side that I have attached here. I am calling them large and small denominations. There are of course other difference that can be seen. If you are interested in seeing larger full pictures of both feel free to go to my Belgian Congo custom sets for a better view. The patterns, like most, are rare.
