Aureo sale 238, lot 102
This specimen was lot 102 in Aureo & Calicó sale 238 (Barcelona, November 2011), where it sold for 280 euro (about US$444 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1814. Guatemala. M. 8 reales. Bella. Parte de brillo original. Rara así. EBC/EBC+. (eight reales of 1814, Guatemala mint. Handsome, 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. 462, KM 69.
