2nd French Republic (1848 - 1851). Here is my shot of the same coin listed here in the Moneta Museum that shows the entire obverse slab, but that photo was done by big coin dealer. Here the coin is photographed thru the plastic case. I think the Ceres heads are fantastic. They were issued during, or following, the Revolutions of 1848 that again rocked the continent in a quest for social change. After this first run they were restruck in the 1870's, during the Paris Commune period. Sealing the identification of the Roman goddess (Ceres) with revolutions in France.
