Aureo sale 238, lot 101
This specimen was lot 101 in Aureo & Calicó sale 238 (Barcelona, November 2011), where it sold for 220 euro (about US$349 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1813. Guatemala. M. 8 reales. Pátina. Defecto en canto. Atractiva. Parte de brillo original. EBC-/EBC. (eight reales of 1813, Guatemala mint. Toned, planchet defects on rim, attractive, lustrous, extremely fine.)"
This type, called the "standard" or "proper" bust, was struck in Guatemala 1811-21. There are Guatemala eight reales with the proper bust of Ferdinand dated 1808 but these are very likely backdated. This type is much more common than those of Charles IV. Assayer M is recorded for 1786-1823.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 27.07 g, .896 fine silver, .780 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: Cal. 461, KM 69.
