The attachment I gave above is from  Scott's French Countermarks on British coins which appeared in SNC Vol LXXXVII = 87 [1979]

This was an updated version of the article which had previously appeared in parts in Vol LXXXVI = 86 - Jan, Feb. and Mar. 1978

Presumably these articles are now redundant which is fortunate as I don't have those particular months.

There is nothing regarding these pieces in Vol 78.

A copy of this article is in my Dropbox. PM me for a link to the article if required.

Here's a lovely ad with donkeys  8)
http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b9004856p.r=picotin.langEN

So not 1885  :-[ but pre 1876! Note award. And note Depositaire P. Rousseau 14 Rue Quincampoix, PARIS  :o

Not necessarily so for the countermark.

The latest dated coin that you found is 1881 - so they would have been stamped, or were still being stamped, after this date, on anything that was in circulation at that time..

Many thanks Mal  ;D
This circular is in google books.  I'm not sure about others.

And sounds feasible.  Although there does seem to be some design differences in the letters. Possibly ::)

On the piece I have - the "P" at the start of "PICOTIN" has a bit missing - just as some pieces that have been shown earlier in this topic.

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

While not related to the 'Le Picotin' countermarks this PDF gives an insight into how the countermarked coins came about.

I now have an 1863 British penny with the Le Picotin Aperitif countermark and once again its the broken P ...the stamp must have broken quite early.  ::)
