El Oro de Moscú

En esta entrada hacia referencia al tema, prometiendo ampliar información

https://moneditis.com/2014/08/11/chascarrillos-argenteo-auriferos/

Ha llegado a mis manos un artículo de Martín Almagro-Gorbea en el número 253 de la revista Numisma, en el que se detallan las monedas contenidas en las 510 toneladas del oro depositado en las cámaras del Banco Central de la URSS a principios de noviembre de 1936

2009 – 253

Atentos a la nota a pie de página 10

Los franceses algo devolvieron…Los rusos, nada.

Interesantes cuadros

Y colorín colorado, sin el oro nos hemos quedado.

P.S. Me parecen dudosos estos 8 reales de la próxima subasta de Aureo – Gaspar de Pórtola III  – lote 87 –    https://www.aureo.com/es/subasta/0317#

Sólo se ve el canto de fantasía en el catálogo. Peso/masa 25,91 g. Gráfila no concluyente y sospechosas marcas en anverso y reverso…además de un desigual desgaste. El metal agrio no autentifica nada. A esta monedita de 8 reales si que la metía en el XRF un buen rato con un par de máscaras distintas y jugando con las “rayitas” jeje

Ponderal 8 reales Felipe V

 

Ponderal de latón para 8 reales con escudo de Felipe V aunque sin inscripción circundante (Felipe IIII)

27,13 g de peso / masa con rayas de ajuste. ss XVII-XVIII

Sirvió como patrón / referencia de masa en alguna ceca hispánica. El latón en aquella época era un metal valioso (más que la plata, menos que el oro), por lo que se reutilizaban según iban cambiando las leyes y de ahí su rareza / escasez actual.

WEST INDIES. Treble Island Countermark. Martinique-St. Kitts-Tortola. 1/4 Dollar, ND (ca. 1805-24). PCGS GOOD-04 Secure Holder.
KM-18(for “TIRTILA” basic type), cf.KM-4(for “S” basic type); KM-25(for crenated edge); cf.Prid-23 for C/M combination. 5.79g. Cut from and countermarked on a Spanish colonial bust type 8 Reales of Charles III of indeterminate mint with the last digit of the date “8” visible. Since the first mutilation of this piece was prior to any possible date ending with an “8” for Charles IV the attribution to Charles III is certain. The original cut by crenated edge occurred in Martinique by authorization of the British Administration in 1797 and valued as 2 Shillings 3 Pence. This piece then traveled to St. Kitts, where it was flipped over and countermarked with four “S” stamps by a decree in 1801, giving it the same circulating value on that island. A final countermark “TIRTILA” (Type III) was then applied on Tortola between 1805-24. The most interesting fact about this piece is the highly unusual presence of a fourth “S” on the reverse. The normal application of the “S” countermarks was to each corner on the cut 1/4 Dollars while the present example has an additional “S” in the center. This is the first example that this cataloger can recall seeing either in reference material or auction catalogs where a cut 1/4 Dollar displayed an additional “S” countermark in the center and as such should be considered EXTREMELY RARE. Missing from Pridmore, Roehrs, Gordon, Ford, Gibbs, Patterson, Byrne, Whetmore and Peltzer collections. Though missing from all of these famous old time collections it should be mentioned that Pridmore had a single 1/4 Dollar example where it had the “S” countermarks in their normal locations at the corners with an additional “S” on the reverse in one corner. Pridmore also had a 1/8 Dollar with four “S” countermarks similar to the present example. A real treat for the advanced collector of cut and countermarks or West Indies. VF details on the Tortola countermark, good detail on “S” countermarks, all with dark gray toning. A fascinating, well traveled piece.

BOLIVIA. 8 Reales Royal, 1655-P E. Philip IV (1621-65). NGC VF Details–Holed.
27.10 gms. KM-R21; Laz-144. Well struck with good definition of the design features which include three very clear dates. Nearly complete legends on the obverse with portions of the tops of letters at about 9 o’clock off the flan, while the reverse boldly displays the King’s name and ordinal with some of the remainder off the flan. Mostly bright gray with deep toning in the recessed areas. Holed, as most are, although quite neatly done and therefore of little detraction to the overall appearance.

CURACAO. 3 Reaals (18 Stivers or Guillotine), ND (ca. 1800-01). PCGS Genuine–Tooled, Fine Details Secure Holder.
6.60 gms. KM-7; Prid-pg. 251 Fig. 25; Scholten-1368a. “Star” or Rosace of five petals countermark applied to reverse of a cut 1/4 Dollar with crenated edges of 1793-MoFM bust 8 Reales of Charles IIII(IV). During the governorship of J. K. Lauffer small silver coinage was obtained by cutting whole Spanish Dollars into quarters. A quantity of 7,000 Dollars were cut into equal parts by goldsmith H. J. Hoyer and were declared current at 3 Reaals or 18 Stivers. The local name given to these as referred to in public notices was “Guillotinos”. A public notice of 3rd March 1801 warned against forgeries. VERY RARE and very interesting, much more so than the later more common British occupation issues of cut 1/5 Dollars. It should be noted that the indent on the reverse next to the date is identical to the example plated in Fred Pridmore’s ground breaking work “The Coins of the British Commonwealth of Nations Part 3 West Indies”. The countermark is well placed and bold. Though the holder indicates tooling this is not accurate, numerous scratches are present on both the obverse and reverse from long ago now toned over. The date and KM number listed on the PCGS insert are incorrect. Dark gray to charcoal toning throughout with hints of blue that pop out when tilted in the light. Another treat for the specialist of West Indies cut and countermarked issues. Countermark VF Details, host coin

ERROR VTRUQUE

Highly Important UTRUQUE Error Legend Variety
MEXICO. 8 Reales, 1746-MF. Philip V (1700-46). NGC VF-35.
KM-unlisted; Gilboy-unlisted. EXCESSIVELY RARE error variety with “UTRUQUE” instead of “UTRAQUE” on the date side. Well struck with contained wear over the higher devices defining the designation and mild adjustment marks on the shield. A premium example for the assigned grade with problem-free surfaces. The discovery piece of this little known and excessively rare variety, which remains unlisted in the Krause and Gilboy reference work. Spelling errors are not unknown for the Spanish Colonial pillar series of 8 Reales with the Potosi 8 Reales 1768 PTS-JR with spelling error “URTAQUE” instead of “UTRAQUE” (6-7 known examples) and the Lima 8 Reales 1771 LM-JM with the error “HIAPSN” instead of “HISPAN” (around 12-15 examples known) the most noteworthy. Both are duly considered as key issues to complete their respective series. The present coin’s rarity propels it into an entirely different level of desirability: only 3 examples are known, one of which is likely impounded for a long time in a private U.S. collection. The present offering thus represents a very rare opportunity to acquire the rarest issue amongst the Mexican pillar 8 Reales (and the key to complete a set of this ever-popular series).

KM-A64.1 (marked A64.2 on slab); Gil-L-8-14B; cf.El-14; Cal-Type 96#837; FC-13b. Single finest certified of the type on the PCGS population report. Variety with dots above both mintmarks. Strong repunch of the 7 and 6 in date. Highly lustrous satiny surfaces with attractive steel gray toning and a nice cartwheel effect, a piece with great eye appeal in this much sought after lofty grade. A spectacular example destined for the finest of cabinets.
