This is the version with a clear first sq. dot between 1 . 1 . 1919. This coin has unusual preservation but the obverse has a weak strike in some areas. So, I have three examples here in the Moneta Museum now. One with full dots, one with no 1st dot, and one the shows a weak dot. There's a better than even chance that KM, that shows varieties with and w/o the dot, is mistaken. I think the die became filled and that the version with a weak 1st dot is mere a transitional example of coin with just one die type. Original color with a fair amount of red on the copper side.
OB, brass on iron: Rampant lion to the left within circles with a legend in Dutch (above) and French (below). Lettering: STAD = GENT (Flemish); VILLE DE GAND (French). Rampant Lion, symbol of Ghent, in the center. RX, copper on iron: 1915, 1 FR (Franken) at the center; Lettering: =REMBOURSABLE=UITBETAALBAAR=1.1.1919. [Translation: Refundable 1.1.1919].
