    Siege coinage.
    XX sols 1708, copper, weight - 7,27 g., size - 30 mm. This coin was released in Lille (French town) during the 1708's siege. British and Austrian troops besieged Lille. Defense of Lille marshal Louis Francois de Booflers ordered. He ordered to make a copper coins for an appeal in Lille in that hard period. It is rather rare coin. Even in such condition.
