I am offering the Old French Consommer (Eat) 25 Centimes CHAMBER OF COMMERCE & EURE LOIR.
jeton Aluminum Token.
History: At the end of the war of 14-18, there is more money. Cities and Chambers of Commerce who had the right to issue notes, particularly in the occupied zone, will have the opportunity of circulating currencies need to help the circulation of money. This type of official document responds to the same request. It does not mention or FRENCH REPUBLIC LIBERTY EQUALITY FRATERNITY, but 'CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE, followed by the name of the city or region. Despite the willingness of the authorities, these pieces could never be minted in silver, the majority being aluminum.
Obverse: In the center, in three lines: 25 / CENT. / 1922. The whole is encircled by ears of wheat. On the left ears of corn, the name of the engraver: THEVENON.
Reverse: In the center a shield with the emblems of four cities in Eure-et-Loir: top left, Chartres had the upper right, Nogent-le-Rotrou, bottom left, Dreux; down right: Châteaudun. It is topped by a crown legend:” CHAMBRE DE COMMERCE D'EURE & LOIR”.
Size: 27 mm. 2.1 grams.

The token you see in the photo is the token you get.
As a coin collector I DO NOT clean any of my coins/tokens to preserve the original patina, if you wish to clean the coin/s I will leave it up to you.
I’m willing to drill a hole in the token with NO extra cost if you needed for Jewelry Making.
