Áureo y Calicó sale 346, lot 1208
This specimen was lot 1208 in Áureo y Calicó sale 346 (Barcelona, March 2020), where it sold for €120 (about US$158 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1718. Felipe V. Cuenca. JJ. 2 reales. Buen ejemplar. Ex Colección Javier Verdejo Sitges. Escasa. MBC+. (kingdom of Spain, Philip V, two reales of 1718, Cuenca mint. Nice example, scarce, choice very fine.)"
This Spanish equivalent of a quarter dollar was struck at the Cuenca mint 1717-26 during the middle part of the reign of king Philip V. The SCWC awards it a very low catalog value. The Spanish mints, Seville, Madrid and Segovia, were very active in striking this denomination. It is still scarce compared to the enormous output of the Latin American mints. The bust type was introduced to the Spanish mints in 1772. Numerous varieties exist for 1718.

Recorded mintage: unknown but common.

Specification: 6.77 g, 0.903 fine silver, this specimen 5,80 g.

Catalog reference: KM 308, AC. 670, Cayón-8685.
