Aureo sale 269, lot 197
This specimen was lot 197 in Aureo sale 269 (Barcelona, July 2015), where it sold for €30 (about US$39 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1742. Felipe V. Segovia. 4 maravedís. Grieta en canto. (MBC+). (Spain, Philip V, four maravedis of 1742, Segovia mint, edge split, good very fine.)"
This type is listed very cheaply in the SCWC for 1741-44 yet is seldom seen in the United States. The denomination was not struck again until 1770, suggesting an oversupply. Copper coins circulated extensively in metropolitan Spain but not at all in her colonies.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: copper, this specimen 6,62 g.

Catalog reference: Cayón-8104, KM 365, Cal. 1993.
