The first specimen was lot 22750 in Stack's Bowers ANA Auction (Denver, CO, August 2017), where it sold for $90. The catalog description[1] noted, "MEXICO. 2 Reales, 1813-JJ. NGC AU Details--Tooled. Minor tooling on the obverse field. Bold portrait with nice even toning." This specimen is one of a series minted 1812-21 in Mexico City during the reign of Ferdinand VII. It uses the "standard bust" of Ferdinand. The mounting anarchy unleashed during the War of Independence forced the royal authorities to open branch mints, such as Zacatecas, Guanajuato and Durango. The date is common. Assayer JJ is recorded for 1812-21.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 6.77 g, .896 fine silver, .196 troy oz ASW.
