Colombia 1834-P RU 1/4 real
"Bogotá, Colombia, 1/4 real, 1834RU. Bold centers but crude rims, VF with very light toning, elusive type with strong catalog value."This quarter 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 much scarcer than the SCWC indicates.
