QuoteAnyway, you convinced me. It must be a series by Bazor. The 1952 Laos series is Bazor as well, I think, even though these are also unsigned: struck in Paris while Bazor was chief engraver there with Bazor's mark.I just had a look at the French Indochina coins of the period. All are signed A. Patey, P. Turin or clearly designed by Lindauer. The exceptions are the "ETAT FRANÇAIS" coins dated 1942-1943. By that time, it must have been far too dangerous to ship coins from France to French Indochina, so my guess is that they were designed locally.Peter
