Mexico 1863Ce 2 reales rev DSLR.jpg

Shown is an 1863CeML two reales, one of a type struck at Real de Catorce 1863 only. This mint seems to have operated throughout the 1860's but all known survivors are dated 1863. Other mints include Guanajuato, Guadalajara, Alamos, Hermosillo, Zacatecas, Culiacan, Chihuahua, Durango, Potosi, Estado de Mexico, Mexico City and Guadalupe y Calvo. Only Oaxaca did not strike this type. This type, legal tender in the pre Civil War United States for a quarter, is common except in uncirculated but this mint is rare, even in low grade. The 1861MoCH is the only date of two reales that is reasonably common in high grade, the result of the dispersal of a hoard.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 6.76 g, .903 fine silver, .196 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: KM 374.1.
