from Aureo sale 291, lot 1058
This specimen was lot 1058 in Aureo sale 291 (Barcelona, April 2017), where it sold for €71 (about US$91 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1705/6. Carlos III, Pretendiente. Barcelona. 1 croat. Anv.: CAROL III D G HISP REX. Rev.: Roel en 2º y 3er cuartel. MBC. (Spain, pretender Charles III, one croat of 1705, Barcelona mint. Obverse: bust left; reverse: rings in second and third quarters. Very fine.)"
This type was issued in Barcelona 1705-06 on behalf of the Austrian archduke Charles, who as Charles III contended unsuccessfully with Philip V for the throne of Spain. It is fairly common in circulated condition and lists for less than the contemporary issues of Philip V. This coin, which does not appear to be clipped, seems a little light for a one real piece, which should be 3.38 g.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver, this specimen 2,36 g.

Catalog reference: Cayón-7972, KM PT1, Cru.C.G. falta, Cal. falta.
