россискоi рубль московского двора

En las monedas de la nueva ceca de Moscú –  Kadashevsky – se realizan una serie de cambios: la inscripción sobre la cabeza está cerrada (sin espacios), en el hombro izquierdo el pliegue de la capa varía, estrella en el pecho, distinta base de la corona y cinta (todo en anverso).En la gran mayoría de monedas de este tipo están presentes todos estos signos, pero hay variaciones en las que falta algo (pliegue, estrella y cinta). Son dos las razones: 1- error del abridor de cuños / grabador (ausencia de cintas o de la estrella), y 2- el recorte en el segundo tipo (transición de 52 a 53), en este último caso la acuñación es fuerte / estampado en exceso.

P.S. Os dejo por aquí unas copias a la venta en subasta; electrotipos / galvanoplastia


El electrotipado (también galvanoplastia ) es un método químico para formar piezas metálicas que reproducen exactamente un modelo. El método fue inventado por Moritz von Jacobi en Rusia en 1838, y fue adoptado inmediatamente para aplicaciones en la impresión y varios otros campos. Como se describe en un tratado de 1890, la electrotipado produce «un facsímil exacto de cualquier objeto que tenga una superficie irregular, ya sea una placa de acero o cobre grabada, un corte de madera o una forma de tipo de montaje, para ser utilizado para imprimir; o una medalla, medallón, estatua, busto o incluso un objeto natural, con fines artísticos «.

Siempre me ha parecido curioso, onomatopéyicamente hablando, el nombre de esta casa de subastas…Curiosas «chapas» en Ginebra. Por qué será que ya no me sorprende…ξ
Spain had been the dominant European superpower only a century prior to Charles II. It had vast colonies all over the world, a terrifying army and navy, and unimaginable wealth.


But history proves that an Empire’s wealth and power never last forever.

And even well before Charles II took the throne, Spanish rulers were already running everything into the ground.

One clear lesson from history is that empires tend to be extremely expensive… especially when you’re the dominant superpower, and all of your rivals are constantly waging war against you.

Spain was no exception. Their empire was extremely expensive to administer, and they were routinely engaged in costly wars.

The emperors were forced to borrow a lot of money to pay for these wars. And Spain’s debt became so vast that the government defaulted at least SEVEN TIMES between the mid 1500s and mid 1600s.

Desperate to make ends meet, the government also hiked taxes to exorbitant levels, including imposing a 14% sales tax. (Somewhere the governor of California is taking notes…)

The government also predictably began rapidly expanding the money supply and debasing its own currency… resulting in one of the worst long-term episodes of inflation in all of human history up to that point.

Spain’s Emperors also began interfering heavily in trade and commerce; they passed rules granting special monopolies to favored businesses, essentially killing off competition, and they inserted extreme government bureaucracy into some of the most important industries like shipping and mining.

It wasn’t long before economic and trade activity began to shrink as a result of these policies.

Between 1600 and 1700, in fact, Spanish shipping volume from the New World had declined by an astonishing 75%.

Part of this decline was because of emerging social trends.

In the early 1400s and early 1500s, the seas were teeming with Spanish explorers– Cortes, Pizarro, de Soto, Ponce de Leon, etc. These men were regarded as national heroes in Spain, and international trade was considered a highly respected industry.

By the mid 1600s, however, trade, commerce, and production had all fallen out of favor. Traders and industrialists were viewed with suspicion instead of esteem.

The economies in cities like Valencia, which had once been famous for its factories and high quality products, quickly decayed. And suddenly Spain found itself importing most of its goods and services from its chief rivals– France, England, and the Netherlands.

Meanwhile the Spanish Inquisition was busy killing off thousands of intellectuals… and condemning tens of thousands more to life imprisonment.

Their crime? Expressing independent thought that differed from the official narrative.

Spain’s message to the world was clear: freedom of thought had no place in the Empire. So anyone capable of innovation stayed as far away as possible.

And as a final point, Spain had suffered a series of embarrassing military defeats from the late 1500s through the mid 1600s, including the Spanish Armada’s humiliating loss to the English in 1588.

Suddenly the rest of Europe realized that Spain was not invincible. The Empire was bankrupt, economically weak, socially decayed. And its military had been embarrassed.

Remember– this was already the situation BEFORE 1665.

And that’s when Charles II took the throne.

In other words, a weak, mentally incompetent fool was put in charge of an Empire that was already in serious decline… and whose chief rivals were rising rapidly.

You don’t need a PhD in European History to figure out how that movie ended: the situation became much worse under Charles II.

And within a few decades, Spain would go on to lose a major war against its rivals that struck the final blow to its dominance.

That’s when the torch was passed, and France became the dominant superpower. Eventually the UK surpassed France, then the United States surpassed the UK.

This cycle has been taking place for more than 5,000 years. Empires rise and fall. Economies rise and fall. And no nation holds the top spot forever.

It’s not hard to understand why.

When an economy is on the rise, people are hungry. They work hard. They save money. They’re focused on the future.

Governments run lean budgets and spend responsibly. They maintain a sound currency.

Once an economy has reached its peak, however, priorities change. Hard work and saving are no longer prized social values. People become more focused on consuming in the present, rather than investing in the future.

Debt levels skyrocket. Government spending balloons. Regulations soar. Prices rise.

Little by little, a nation chips away at the very values and institutions that made them powerful to begin with.

If fiscal responsibility has made the nation wealthy, they begin printing record sums of money, engineering inflation, and taking on mountains of debt.

If capitalism has made the economy prosperous, they cheer socialism.

If personal freedom and self-reliance have created a strong society, they embrace totalitarianism, intolerance, and censorship.

Not to mention, there always seems to be some rival, rising power lurking, ready to take advantage of the situation… and some weak leadership like Charles II who hits the gas pedal on the way towards the precipice.

This story is as old as human civilization. And while the exact circumstances today are different, the themes are very similar.

¡Estos yankees! ¡Haz lo que yo digo pero no lo que yo hago! Dicho, faltaría más, con todo el cariño que siento por Ben Franklin, Carlie «Bird» Parker y Tim Berners-Lee, entre otros, jeje (Tim es british, sorry)


El Sr. Mike Dunigan señalo en su conferencia “The Great Coin Transition 1732 -1734” (La Gran Transición de la Moneda 1732 – 1734), impartida en octubre del 2019 indica que para 1732 no hubo suficiente capacidad de las prensas para acuñar la demanda de moneda, por lo que las macuquinas continuaron acuñándose a golpe de martillo, a la vez que las Columnarias en prensa, la anterior complicación solo se presentó en las acuñaciones argentíferas, el oro continuó acuñándose de forma redonda, con cordoncillo.

En 1733 la producción de macuquinas se trasladó a prensas, (dejando de ser manual), pero en cospeles aún irregulares, esta vez cuadrados o rectangulares, cortados a tijera, los cuños fueron rediseñados, reduciendo el relieve para troquelar sobre cospeles no redondos, los denominados “klippes” continuaron su producción ese año y hasta el primer trimestre de 1734 y solo en valores de 4 y 8 reales. La transición total a la nueva moneda no se alcanzaría hasta ese último año.

Hasta el 23 de diciembre de 1732 la casa de moneda estuvo en condiciones para poner en circulación la nueva moneda, lo cual fue anunciado ese mismo día por el pregonero de la Ciudad de México.

Adicionalmente, el nombre formal de los klippes es “las cortadas”, fueron las primeras monedas de diseño mexicano, siendo provisionales, de transición, no ordenadas por España. Fueron usados cuños circulares pero cospeles irregulares, de forma rectangular u octagonal, haciéndose en prensas de a volante. Los únicos ensayadores de estas monedas fueron Manuel de León y Francisco Antonio de la Peña y Flores (M y F). Hay klippes perfectamente redondos, pueden llegar a confundirse con los galanos, sin embargo el canto marcará la diferencia.


En el cambio legislativo de 1732, se indicaba que debía haber dos ensayadores, (en lugar de uno) en las cecas tomando responsabilidad de la ley de las monedas. Se tardó un tiempo en adoptar esta medida y por eso, en 1733 aparecen 8 reales con marca de ensayador F (Francisco de la Peña) y con marca MF (Manuel de León y Francisco de la Peña).  https://www.imperio-numismatico.com/t149345p50-real-de-a-8-columnario-1734-ceca-de-mexico

Puntos a tener en cuenta en estas piezas

1) Estas piezas, presentan en principio alineación Medalla (reverso coincidente).

2) Los Clipers/Klippes son en principio, uniformes en grosor. Los rieles que dieron lugar a estas piezas fueron laminados a maquina (Rodillos).

3) Los cospeles fueron recortados manualmente (cizallas). El canto es liso consecuencia del recorte manual.

4) En estas piezas, no es difícil encontrar marcas incusas por choque de cuños sin cospel. Repintada/INCUSA por choque de Cuños sin cospel.

Continuando con las formas de patinar nuestras monedas. Personalmente, no lo aconsejo…pero hay verdaderos maestros en este arte, como en casi todo

Estos procedimientos son genéricos para joyería, por lo que no siempre son aplicables a monedas. El motivo fundamental de estas entradas en el blog es que conozcáis las formas de patinar y los resultados obtenidos, para así poder determinar si la moneda que tenéis en las manos ha sido manipulada. Además de a simple vista, se pueden realizar analíticas en superficie…pero esa es otra cuestión 🙂

Parece que el azufre en diversas formulaciones / mezclas sirve bien al propósito de oscurecer y embellecer el metal

Here’s why you’ll be unable to buy silver by May 14

Discussionr/Wallstreetsilver•Posted byu/MichaelSilveria18 days ago

Here’s why you’ll be unable to buy silver by May 14Discussion

So first this is going to be an ‘opinion’ post for 2 reasons. The first is I cannot be bothered to explain and quantify all the data I have. Second is I do not want to reveal my sources. So assume I am a schizophrenic that hears voices and thinks god told me all this.

By May 7th silver retail production will be about 5% compared to what it is now. Roughly a week later all retail products made from March 1 to May 7th will have been sold. You will effectively be unable to buy any new coins or bars from this point (May 14th) onwards as that small amount being produced per day will have an ever increasing tank of sharks chasing it.

Now for some explanations of what we are seeing in the physical market. Around Feb 1 when the WSS movement started there were bars and coins sitting in shops and warehouses around the world, lets call this global retail inventory «Before WSS Inventory» or BWI. This entire supply was wiped out by early March. Now this BWI that was bought up very quickly did not touch a single 1000oz bar in the market, this is why Comex and ETFs barely saw movement until March rolled around.

Somewhere between Feb and March the retail smelters and refineries went to 100% production and they will stay there until, one by one they run out of supply. May 7th is the deadline so to speak when nearly all of their 1000oz supply will be depleted. Any increase in demand for retail products will not speed up this process, they will be making products until May 7th, they have their 1000oz inventory and they are close to 100% production. There are some exceptions to all refineries operating at 100%, some have already depleted their supplies and some are rationing while they attempt to source new 1000oz bars.

So what is the actual problem here? If a refinery runs out of 1000oz it will just get more right? This is exactly what they have been doing, in near panic for the last 2 weeks. But this process began at some refineries middle of February, kicked into gear first week of March and hit panic levels just recently. They cannot find enough. Refineries are now battling investors for the last 1000oz bars and paying premiums never seen before, this is part of the reason premiums for the retail products are high and will get higher. Refineries are also getting phone calls from ETFs/investors asking them for their remaining 1000oz.

So here is what you are going to see in the leadup to May 7th.

  1. Individual retail suppliers are one by one going to run out of product completely as the refineries they rely on cease or ration production.
  2. There will be an increased inability to convert any paper product into 1000oz bars, let alone smaller bars.
  3. PSLV will come out before the end of April and say they are unable to source enough 1000oz bars to satisfy their prospectus.
  4. Premiums will get higher and higher.
  5. Local coin shops may be the only possibility to find any silver after May as some people will still be selling a few coins and bars.

All of this is based on the assumption that refiners will use their whole 1000oz inventory for products. If they don’t that May 7th deadline will be pushed forward. Why wouldn’t they? Well greed mainly. If you had the last supplies of a dwindling resource it would make financial sense for you to stop production now and make products in the future when you can charge way more. If there are any refinery «unexpected downtime» this is the reason. It is also possible they will be «politely» asked to stop.

As always, good luck to everyone.

Resumen: se acaba la plata 😉




Sigo sin bola de cristal…pero es «divertido» pensar que David (apes) podrá contra Goliath (banca metalera)


This war is not meant to be won; it is meant to be continuous. An essay.

Due Diligence

The people in power WANT everyone alive poor, desperate, and helpless so we beg for salvation in the form of Central Bank Digital Currencies while the top 1% get richer than any other time EVER. Please read this entire post as I’ll go into detail about what’s really happening.

Central Bank Digital Currencies will give central banks «absolute control» (their words, not mine) over every person on earth. We cannot allow this global dictatorship to happen!! If they succeed, it will entrap all of humanity in PERMANENT slavery, forever. This is not an exaggeration!

This is quite literally the fight between good and evil for the future of all of humanity. If not for you, think of future generations. We cannot afford to lose this war! This was the same critical inflection point that caused Ancient Rome to fall, but this time it’s global.

I am begging you to look around and SEE what’s happening before your very eyes. People are scared and depressed through the constant bombardment of COVID-19 propaganda, lockdowns, and politics. People are choosing not to have life-saving cancer treatments for fear of catching a virus with a 97.8% survival rate. Suicides and homicides have spiked over extreme acute stress and trauma. The police force is turning against the people they are supposed to «serve and protect» while they act as a buffer between us and the real enemies: governments and banks. All of these entities were put in place BY US, to represent US. They haven’t actually represented us since the day they took office. Their campaigning to the populous was just a show with no intention to follow through on anything they promised. Banks and huge corporations then use their wealth to buy politicians to ensure they get ahead financially at the expense of everyone else. Buying politicians supposedly has a 750:1 return on investment.

If this doesn’t look like a world you imagined for yourself, your children, or your family, then you need to do something about it RIGHT NOW. Central Bank Digital Currencies are being built and implemented through the entire world economy as I write this, here in the year 2021. The first several are already in use.

Here’s how we got to this place: when you work at a job, you use your energy to produce something of value and are paid for whatever it is you produce. When you save money in a bank account (many banks pay you next to nothing in interest), not only are you losing your purchasing power and becoming poorer thanks to inflation, the banks are using YOUR cash to make loans to other people and are charging interest on that to the tune of at least 10:1. For every $1,000 in a bank account, they lend out $10,000 and charge interest on all of that. Yes, this means banks lend out money they don’t even have and charge interest on it.

And here’s the real shocker: when your local bank runs out of your money and can’t counterfeit even more into existence due to the reserve requirements, they call up the central bank to send them more. Central banks then get the national mint to print currency, then they lend that newly printed currency to the government and charge the government interest on loans to the local banks. Finally, the taxpayer is on the hook for ALL of it. This is called fractional reserve lending and it is the single source for ALL of humanity’s problems, from famines to war to poverty to hatred and wealth inequality.


The elites use their power, wealth, and influence to wage psychological wars on the masses so that we will fight amongst ourselves over race (think Black Lives Matter or White Supremacists), politics (think Democrat vs. Republican), religion (think Christian vs. Muslim), when in reality, NONE of that stuff truly matters. It is ALL a social construct designed specifically to divide us and keep us fighting while the top 1% plunder the world’s riches.

Bankers have figured out a way to steal more than 90% of ALL of humanity’s wealth. This creates extraordinary distortions in the economy, as well as massive booms and busts like the one we are currently going through.

If you’ve ever felt like it’s getting harder to make ends meet, that’s because it is. You ARE getting poorer while banks and governments are getting unimaginably rich buying up all of the assets and resources in the economy (think the housing crisis of 2008/2009) by using our collective work energy. This happens to you even if you’ve never taken out a loan in your entire life. Simply using currency is what causes inflation, yet it’s the same people that benefit most that are telling us to use their infinitely-inflatable currency.

At some point, the dam always breaks because the cost of living exceeds income, and to prevent the debt slaves (meaning the entire population) from going bankrupt and causing deflation, leading to cascading defaults, bankers must hyperinflate the currency away like many countries including the United States (yes really; see the money supply at https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/M1), Canada, Australia, Italy, Venezuela, and others are doing right now. Hyperinflation allows debtors to pay back their debts using worthless currency.

Fortunately, there is a way out of this hell they’re building; it’s their true Achilles heel: physical, real-world, hold-in-your-hands SILVER.

Silver is a naturally-limited (and dwindling) resource that cannot be inflated away, cannot be recreated in a laboratory, and has been used in commerce for thousands of years.

Physical silver is a store of value and if you hold your wealth in this form, it is impossible to go broke because it has intrinsic value.

Silver also protects you and your family from the ravages of hyperinflation. Just look at what happened to the price of silver in Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Weimar Germany, and Hungary during their bouts of hyperinflation; silver went up in price by BILLIONS of percentage points. Not even Bitcoin can offer such incredible, life-changing returns.

We MUST start using silver again and not fiat currencies that secretly steal all of your purchasing power through inflation over the decades! It’s the only way we can truly heal as a species.

Just remember, the people have always had the power, not our «elected officials» or banks, and it’s about fucking time we take back what’s ours!!

r/SilverSqueeze - The Purpose of Socialism/Communism is the Centralization of Power in the Hands of The Few. BUY SILVER & PUT THE POWER BACK IN THE HANDS OF THE PEOPLE. Buying Silver brings the world back to a Gold/Silver Standard that keeps the governments in check at least with regards to Money …


According to Ted Butler the combined short position of Bank of America and the Cartel is about 850 million ounces. From where the hell will they get this metal ?

Widget image

Exactly ten years back in April,2011 Silver traded at around $50. And now 10 years later in April, 2021 it is trading at around $25 ( half the price of April 2011) and is even being pushed below $25 as was done on last Monday. And this has happened despite the runaway inflation as prices of all items have gone up much higher. The only reason for this paradoxical fall in Silver price is the huge and concentrated short position of about 850 million ounces of a Cartel of banks like Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Bank of America to name a few. Now with the tightening of the physical availability of Silver in the market caused by this noble movement started by we Apes, the noose is tightening around the neck of these Banks and soon they will run for cover. The countdown has already started and the Silver Rocket is soon ready to take off leaving the all time high of $50 in April 2011 much behind it.

¡Esto va muy deprisa! El miércoles 1 de julio Bob Bair nos instruyó sobre CAC & ITS «Green Beans» y ayer jueves 2 de julio Brian Silliman y Jim Robinson: Counterfeit Detection    https://info.money.org/elearning

La charla CAC & ITS «Green Beans» versó sobre las bondades de un certificador, CAC, de certificadores, NGC y PCGS. Le añaden una pegatina verde, green bean, al ataúd sellado de PCGS y/o NGC y así aumenta el precio de la moneda, al considerarla premium

Lo mejor fue la segunda hora, de turno de preguntas. Interesantes datos sobre la forma de ver el coleccionismo numismático por parte de los yankees. A mi pregunta sobre si tienen delegación en Europa, respondió que no. Aquí funcionamos de otra manera.

La charla de ayer, Counterfeit Detection, mucho más interesante  http://bsrarecoins.com/

Brian Silliman al frente y Jim Robinson contestando preguntas. Desde tipos hasta estadística (supuesta) de falsificaciones. En cuanto a los métodos, en este mismo blog hay diversas entradas al respecto

Múltiples detalles técnicos y varias máximas a tener en cuenta, entre las que destaco que la perfección en la falsificación aún no se ha alcanzado (uhmmm…dudo) y que menos del 1% de las monedas a la venta son falsas (discrepo abiertamente) Por supuesto, esto de pillar las falsas es cuestión de ver muuuuuchas monedas…aunque no sólo  😉

Más de media hora explicó el ponente las falsificaciones de centavos americanos, de nulo interés para mi, para a continuación ver algunos dólares de plata. Las monedas de oro quedaron al margen del seminario, aunque Jim Robinson comentó que, por su experiencia en APMEX, las más falsificadas son los sovereigns, USA pre 33 y bullion.

Dos horas repletas de información; mucho quedó en el tintero pero siempre suele ser así cuando se habla de falsificaciones. Parece que los vídeos estarán disponibles en la página de la ANA en algún momento del futuro cercano.

P.S. Fake slabs



Dominical Fin de la Plaza Mayor (mercadillo numismático) II

Enlace a escrito de agosto de 2018 sin respuesta, citado en escrito de julio de 2019 adjunto


Dominical Fin de la Plaza Mayor (mercadillo numismático) – continúa la saga con escrito y respuesta impagable del querido por todos hay-untamiento de Madrid.

Ni cortos ni perezosos, esto es lo que responden…casi un año después…

Información Exp. 2018/873528_2019/738351

JMD Centro – Actos en Vía Pública de Centro    actosvpublicacentro@madrid.es

Buenos días,

En relación a las instancias recibidas con número: 2018/873528 y 2019/738351 respectivamente en este Ayuntamiento, le comunicamos que cualquier incidencia de esta índole tiene que ponerse en contacto con la Asociación AMayor.


No parece que ni siquiera hayan leído que Amayor no me responde/no atiende mis reiteradas peticiones. SE LAVAN LAS MANOS. Eso si, si yo ahora les desease que un rayo les partiese en dos o que las plagas de Egipto se cebaran en su familia durante las próximas 20 generaciones, podría ser sancionado. ¿HDLGP? (HiDaLGum Pere)

Así es como solucionan de un plumazo el asunto…¡Como para fiarse de estos pájaros! (políticos en general – funcionarios del área de centro, vía pública – en particular – AMayor)


¡A ver que tal se os da! 😉

Rublo / Рубль / Ruble 1924 II

Aquí una extensa entrada sobre el rublo de 1924 de la ya Unión Soviética


peeero faltaba la variante de las ventanas cuadradas (cuadrante inferior derecho), rublo por el que se pagan 300 y pico euritos en EBC/XF

Primer rublo acuñado por la URSS

Las ventanas cuadradas de la fábrica con dos chimeneas junto al pie izquierdo del trabajador

Comparativa. Fijaos bien… (abriendo la fotografía en otra ventana y ampliando)

¿Origen del error/fallo? Esmero en la proporción de las ventanas  😉

Misma inscripción en el canto que en el rublo sin error

No hace mucho…

Apartado del mundanal ruido y el bullicio en tranquila dacha a las afueras de Petersburgo

¡Qué paz!

Apenas hace unas horas…

Kiosko monedas II

No deja de sorprenderme el hecho de encontrarme monedas en los kioskos de prensa y «chuches» varias; como no es habitual en España…  Aquí   https://moneditis.com/2015/05/03/kiosko-monedas/  una entrada anterior

Evidentemente no hay monedas caras; la mayoría tienen que ver con el pasado mundial de fútbol, pero no sólo. Bimetálicas y doradas de 10 rublos, álbumes…Material asequible y que demanden los usuarios del transporte público (estación de metro y autobuses cercana), normalmente no en la franja socio-económica de millonarios locales

No sólo en kioskos por la calle te puedes encontrar con una «sorpresa monetaria». Aquí  https://moneditis.com/2015/11/30/puesto-numismatico/   puesto de monedas dentro de un Centro Comercial.

Y si de sorpresas se trata, aquí os dejo este templo escondido entre edificios…

Visto al cruzar la calle  🙂

AUSTRALIAN Proclamation Coins – Monedas de proclamación australianas


Stack´s Bowers (USA) http://www.stacksbowers.com/Pages/Home.aspx


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.
NGC VF Details–Holed.


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
PCGS Genuine–Tooled, Fine Details Secure Holder.



JAMAICA. 6 Shillings 8 Pence (Dollar 8 Reales), ND (Act of 18 November 1758). PCGS VF-35 Secure Holder.
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

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).

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.
