(a) Cabinet des Médailles, Bibliothèque Nationale, 58 rue de Richelieu, 75084 Paris, France, Armand-Valton 1844, cast bronze, 69.5 mm. This example is not signed and has an (?)alien reverse showing an angel slaying a devil in a landscape.
Seems to form a pair with a similar medal of his brother Charles, duc d'Angoulême, made in the same year. The signature below the bust seems to read either CC or GC.
