French Credential for Holy Year

Time of past OR future Camino
2006 to date: Over 21 Caminos. See signature line
Does anyone have a photo of the credential we would pick up in France for Holy Year? Are they doing a special one or will it be the same one?

I KNOW Ivar has some :) I ordered some from him.
What I was curious about was what the French version looks like this year.

Annie, Ivar mentioned on one of his updates and said he's starting to run low on supply, so I treated my wife and myself to a Holy Year Camino Passport, and also ordered a set from American's on the Camino, since my wife and I always need two passports each per camino. Bob
 
Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

Ivar has a small supply left and he is not certain if he can order any more. I bought one from him earlier in the year. My only concern is that it is considerably smaller than the usual credential and will fill up too quickly on a long journey. I had been intending to follow Camino del Norte from Santander to Oviedo and the do the Primitivo. I resolved to buy a normal credential to start with and then save my Holy Year one for the last 100k when you need two stamps per day.

The first edition came out in 2003 and has become the go-to-guide for many pilgrims over the years. It is shipping with a Pilgrim Passport (Credential) from the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.

I ordered some from Ivar, but was just wondering what the French version looked like this year.
