Aureo sale 246, lot 543. The reverse image is upside down.
This specimen was lot 543 in Aureo y Calicó sale 246 (Barcelona, September 2012), where it sold for 135 € (about $205 including buyer's fees). The catalog[1] noted,
"Felipe III (1598-1621). 1612. Barcelona. 1/2 croat. Rayitas. MBC-. (Philip III (1598-1621), half croat of 1612, Barcelona mint, scratches, about very fine.)"
This type is listed in the SCWC under Aragon, without a picture, and credited therein to the Zaragoza mint. We suspect that the auctioneers, natives of Barcelona, are more likely to be accurate but proceed with the SCWC's classification anyway.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver.

Catalog reference: KM 19 (listed under Aragon), Cal. 535, Cayón no. 4443 (attributed to Zaragoza).
