The much more prolific and common lighter second issue has the divine radiance above the scroll and is what is usually encountered like we have here. Issued from 6th September 1423 it was issued at 70 pieces to the mark. It was issued from the Mints of Amiens, Auxerre, Châlons-sur-Marne, Dijon, Le Mans, Paris, Rouen, St Lô, St Quentin and Troyes.
