That is a beautifull AV 100 Francs!
I have a 1862-BB example/ hopefully will get a "bareheaded example" this year!
Here's the most available date but in extraordinary condition. Mintage 103,330 pieces. Raw, these sell for spot at most coin shops, and I think that's part of the reason the other better dates are so inexpensive, dealers treat them like type coins without much concern about it possibly being a better date or mintmark. Quite understandable I suppose for a dealer buying 8% back of spot, all he cares about is turning his inventory as fast as he possibly can.
I should probably consider buying some myself
The defining characteristics of political Bonapartism were flexibility and adaptability. Napoleon III once commented on the diversity of opinions in his cabinet, united under the banner of Bonapartism. Referring to the leading figures in the government of the Second Empire, he remarked: "The Empress is a Legitimist, Morny is an Orléanist, Prince Napoleon is a Republican, and I myself am a Socialist. There is only one Bonapartist, Persigny – and he is mad!"
