Aureo sale 232, lot 2404
The specimen shown was lot 2404 in Aureo y Calico sale 232 (Barcelona, March 2011), where it sold for 61 euros (about US$101 including buyer's fee). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1864. Barcelona. 25 céntimos de real. Escasa. MBC+. (Twenty-five centimos de real, Barcelona mint, scarce, choice very fine.)"
This Spanish twenty-five centimos of a real was part of the first decimal reform of 1850-64. In 1850, the twenty reales was reduced to 26.91 grams. This having proven unsatisfactory, the coinage was reformed again in 1864. The twenty reales was dropped in favor of a two escudos silver coin, reduced to 25.96 grams. This date, of a type struck at Barcelona 1863-64, is among the last to bear a traditional mintmark. During the 1850's, the regime changed the mintmark system to stars of various numbers of points. Unfortunately, the government, financially prostrate as usual, was unable to remint the old coins, which continued to circulate as before.

Recorded mintage: unknown but rather scarce.

Specification: copper.

Catalog reference: KM 615.1, Cal. 588.
