Colombia 1828-Pn MF real
"Bogotá, Colombia, 1 real, 1828MF. Lustrous XF with slightly crude obverse rim (as made), die-crack across middle of reverse, scarce single-year assayer."This one real was struck at Bogotá and Popayán 1826-36 while the country was the "Republic of Colombia," which, after many vicissitudes, is again the country name. The type is scarcer than the SCWC indicates.
