An interesting french token with a fox ...booted ...masonic !
The " booted fox " ( in french : " Le renard botté " ) was the sign of a bootmaker in Paris since the XVII° century. Nobody knows really why this name had been chosen !
During the XIX° century, the bootmaker named Capelle was a freemason and decided to show this on its tokens :
On the obverse above the fox you can see : square and compass, plus a G inside a star
On the reverse you can see 3 dots on each side of Capelle
For the time being, I have three different types of this token, but I am still searching others

Highly amusing, maxmissy. I am toying with the name Capelle, the equivalent of chapelle in French.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
