Aureo sale 238, lot 380
This specimen was lot 380 in Aureo & Calicó sale 238 (Barcelona, November 2011), where it sold for 160 euro (about US$254 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1813. México. JJ. 8 reales. Parte de brillo original. Escasa así. EBC-. (eight reales of 1813, Mexico City mint. Lustrous, scarce, nearly extremely fine.)"
The year 1813 saw assayers HJ (1809-14) and JJ (1812-21). Assayer JJ is common while HJ is scarce. Later years are slightly scarcer as the spread of the war of independence curtailed the flow of bullion to the mint.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

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

Catalog reference: Cal. 551, KM 111.
