I've never seen one before - is it rare / original ?

Thanks.

Hello Antonio,

The piece has no marks. I know who King Carlos VII was - I don't know if this piece is genuine/rare??

Peter.

Thank you Miguel. I bought it at auction in London in a mixed lot of Spanish, Italian and Irish medals a couple of years ago and it's been puzzling me ever since.

Regards,

Peter.
