Guatemala 1900-H 1/4 real
The specimen shown is of a type common in all grades. The type was struck 1900-01 at the Heaton mint along with copper-nickel half and one reales. Guatemala was the last country in Latin America to abandon the real, in 1912, a reflection of the extreme conservatism of the peasant society.
Recorded mintage: unknown.
