I also have the following from the same series, but in each case only one side is shown. I don't know whether the other sides exist.

Thanks for showing these it will be interesting to see if the other sides show later somewhere.

All are very nicely made with certainly no intention to deceive with the plain, named, and marked WR reverse. Possibly those marked as " A Westair Reproduction" are the most recent type to make this even clearer.

They say:
"Aged by ourselves and stamped with a small letter "R" they also have a make-believe moneyers name "GRVNAL" to stop deception."

I think we do have some of with the "R" here somewhere, its too late at night here for me to start searching.

At least some of that series exists in duplicate, with the other of the pair showing the other side.

Spotted a pair on eBay today with tickets. presumably Westair?

Those look stylistically similar to the Westair monarchs series I posted at the top of this page.

That's interesting I've not seen any French ones before.

This opens up new possibilities?   :o

The WRL is there if you look for it but not too conspicuous.  8)
