Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Based on the photographs and description provided, the subject of this appraisal is a non-authenticated, non-graded 1857A French 10 Francs Napoleon III gold coin.
Based on photographic examination, the coin lacks many of the details found on mint specimens such as full hair lines. The coin has been well-circulated and handled. An approximate grade would be expected to be Very Good to Fine if graded.
Based on recent online auction sales of similar condition 1857 10 Francs coins, a Fair Market Value (pre-auction estimate) of this piece would be estimated at $150 to $175.
