Looking for the realised and estimated price?

Description: 13 March 1781 Action d'un Denier. black. No 52. A little spotting at the borders. Fine vignette of the Traisnel family arms, with three Bourbon fleur-de-lis. The Marquis' mines were at Aniche, near Douai (northern France). The concession dates from 1774. At first, the mines were very difficult to work, with very thin and irregular seams of coal. The company later became the Cie des Mines d'Aniche, which became one of the most important coalmining companies of France. The share is signed by Flemish names, as well as by the Marquis himself. This is nothing less than the oldest French mining share we know of. Rarity 8.
