France, Third Republic (1870 - 1940) One Franc featuring a French national symbol, The Sower (Semeuse). Perhaps another symbol, Mariane, in the role of the sower. An excellent NGC MS65 encapsulated example with golden and bluish hues, the photo does not do it justice. The year, 1914, is the first year of WWI in which France was so devastated.
OB: The Sower, designed by Oscar Roty in 1900, a national emblem of the French Republic. REPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE; O. Roty [Engraver: Louis-Oscar Roty]
Rx: Underneath the face value, an olive branch is surrounded with the French motto: LIBERTE·EGALITE·FRATERNITE 1 FRANC 1914
[Translation: Liberty Equality Fraternity]
The mintage is 14,361,102, years beyond 1914, to 1920, have much higher mintages; this one year can have a mintmark of "C" which has a much lower mintage of just 43,421.
