A revision of this series was long overdue in my opinion, mainly because of the uncertainty surrounding some of the era dates in Duyrat 2005 and the discovery of three entirely new years of coin production. For those of you who have already purchased this wonderful book, i offer this update. Before we get started i would like to take this opportunity in thanking BNF, BM and Molinari for kindly allowing me to use their imagery. Also an additional thanks to all the anonymous owners of this type used in verifying era dates and lettering/mint marks. For the record, i contributed with two série 13 coins of which one was extremely useful in respect to confirming a disputed era date, but alas i deemed the coin unsuitable for publication and choose not to add it to the mosaic below. However it will be uploaded to my gallery at a later date.

I have highlighted the new era dates in bold letters, map key abbreviations can be seen below.

Hopefully this will help with further identification of Série 13 coins in the future, i look forward to filling in possible new dates if and when they are discovered. I am pretty certain during the 108 years or more of production that these coins were more widely produced than the ten occasions i´m aware of.

I am very pleased with the quality of my latest Série 13 which i managed to acquire for a very reasonable price. A most welcome addition to this ongoing study of these fascinating Radiate Helios type and hopefully not the last.
