Can some please tell me what this 1791 Coin is?

I’d really like to know what it is and possibly what it’s worth.
Thank you

    It is from France, King Louis XVI (Louis the Sixteenth), denomination 2 sols, bronze, 1791 "A" mint mark (for Paris). In this condition, retail is anywhere from $2 to $10.

    These can be pricey in high grade, but they are not too difficult to find in lower grades. The fact that the coin is a bit larger-sized helps its desirability.

    This specimen is well worn, but somebody will want it as a historic artifact from the early part of the French Revolution. Of course, in 1793, the King was guillotined.

    France 2 sols Louis XVI, probably worth less than a dollar in this condition.
