This specimen was lot 34500 in Ponterio sale 177 (Chicago, August 2013), where it sold for $499. The catalog description[1] noted, "CHILE. 1/2 Real, 1816-FJ. NGC MS-64. Lustrous. Light even toning."

The opening of an enlarged Casa de Moneda in 1805 allowed the increase in mintages and this type is scarce but available.
