Haiti, brass die trial (?) 15 centimes, 1824, very rare. Rulau-30 var. 43.52 grams. A thick brass slug with incuse AMERIQUE / L'AN / 1824 on one side and incuse 15 / CENTIMES on the other, incuse V-shaped ornaments and borders on both sides, technically UNC but with some darkness due to degradation of the brass surfaces. Specialist David Henkle states this is one of only two specimens known, the other much thinner, believed to be test strikes for a proposed coinage but more like a token coinage in our opinion.
