This is a poor, probably eighteenth-century cast. The obverse and reverse do not belong with each other, although they are also found united in an example in the Madrid collection. The reverse, which is signed with the monogram GDP, for G. Dupré, belongs with an obverse bearing a left-facing bust of Henri and signed with the same monogram (see 2).
