Summary

Print shows, on the left, Louis, the Duke of Burgundy, identified as Louis Le Petit, sitting at a table outside a tent. In his right hand, he appears to be holding a Louis d'Or coin, and with his left hand he holds a balance above other coins on the table (the table top is supported by an eagle). An "essayeur", identified as "Celuy qui epreuve l'Or", is standing opposite of Louis, he holds a triangle from which coins dangle. Fleurs-de-lis decorate Louis's clothing, and the assayer's clothing shows the design of a cross saltire and orle, possibily representing the House of Bourbon or Navarre.
