France 10 Francs 1929 to 1949
Pretty coin. The French government issued these coins from 1929 through 1953, but changed there size and composition over the years as follows:
1929 through 1939: silver, about 28 mm diamter
1945 through 1949: copper-nickel, about 26 mm diameter
1950 through 1959: aluminum-bronze, about 20 mm diameter
Only a few specific dates are valuable. All other dates, like the 1948 coin inquired about, are worth less than one US dollar in worn condition, and less than $10 in fully uncirculated condition.
Here are the *good dates and mint marks* with their catalog values quoted for average circulated condition:
