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

KM-8.2; Prid-4. Bi-facial floral “GR” countermark well applied to centers of a 1755 Mexico 8 Reales (KM-104.2). Lovely mottled old envelope tone displaying hues of blue, sea foam green and rose. A lovely example with good eye appeal. 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).
NGC VF-35.

PERU
Magnificent Lima Pillar Dollar
PERU. 8 Reales, 1762-L JM. PCGS MS-65 Secure Holder.
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.

Simetría Columnaria

Otra lectura de verano…que al final tendrá relación con mi moneditis 🙂

https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simetría

https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teor%C3%ADa_de_grupos

Teoría de Grupos, Galois, Abel… https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89variste_Galois

Me ha parecido interesante, entre otros detalles a lo largo del libro, esta sección dedicada a la música y su relación con el álgebra.

Ya…pero…¿y las moneditas…?

¿Veis alguna simetría en el reverso y anverso de este columnario?

Unas cuantas…y en el canto. Traslacional, reflectiva…

Si amigos. Necesito seguir descansando… 😉

https://www.sixbid.com/browse.html?auction=5002

En una breve, aunque intensa visita, he fotografiado algunos columnarios, alguno con detalle curioso.

https://www.ibercoin.com/es/subastas-numismaticas/1-Subasta-Online-27-06-2018/lote-548-CARLOS-III

Me extrañaba un peso tan bajo en la descripción (24,73 g), por lo que supuse que era una errata…y así es (comunicado a Ibercoin)

https://www.sixbid.com/browse.html?auction=5002&category=150661&lot=4174497

26,71 g es un peso (masa) dentro de límites. Un coleccionista informado no hubiese comprado nunca este columnario; 2 gramos de falta de peso es mucha tela…

Si, ya sé que este es el reverso. Buena conservación general

La calidad de las fotos no es la que debiera…

Y en los cantos es donde el cerrillado es curioso, al haberse desplazado una de las cerrillas (más bien el cospel) en el proceso. No hay cambio de dirección pero si solapamiento de las hojas de laurel. No es raro que suceda en esta ceca (visto alguna otra vez).

Luego, con algo más de tiempo, quizá suba alguna otra monedita más… 🙂

Klub Numismático 2018

Cada seis (6) meses + o –  procedo con una entrada del Klub. Esta es la primera del 2018, pero….  https://moneditis.com/2015/04/20/moneditis-en-san-petersburgo/   allá por el 2015 y el cambio a la nueva sede  https://moneditis.com/2015/11/22/nueva-sede-klub-del-koleccionista-en-piter/

Cuando voy, ya sea a recoger material de Sergey o simplemente a zascandilear/enredar/mirar y charlar, casi siempre encuentro entre mis manos algún 8 reales para su valoración y autentificación, ya sea de algún colega o encontrado entre el material a la venta

Con este “chino” caben pocas dudas…pero recuerdo un potosino de busto de Carlos III hace unas semanas que, excepto por el peso y una marcada diferencia entre anverso y reverso en cuanto a desgaste/detalle, además del canto, podría haber pasado como bueno en sus tiempos. Del resto de 8 reales de busto de Carlos IV de este vendedor no hice fotos, pero al preguntarle sobre el origen de esas monedas, un embarazoso silencio me hizo desistir de preguntar más, aunque seguí mirando thalers y un patagón de Amberes que parecía bueno…pero cuando veo falsas mezcladas entre auténticas en un álbum, la desconfianza se instala en mi subconsciente.

Una vez recorridas las tres (3) salas varias veces, con múltiples paradas, incluyendo chupitos de coñac, y haber salido a los corrillos de la calle, donde siempre se cuece algo, me vuelvo a casa, acompañado o no, dando un paseíto

El hielo se ha “petrificado” en las zonas sin paso.
