Aureo sale 238, lot 46
This specimen was lot 46 in Aureo & Calicó sale 238 (Barcelona, November 2011), where it sold for 290 euro (about US$460 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1816. Durango. MZ. 8 reales. Buen ejemplar para esta ceca. Escasa. (MBC+). (eight reales of 1816, Durango mint. Nice example for this mint, scarce, choice very fine.)"
The Durango mint was opened in 1812 by the royalists during the Mexican war of independence and operated until 1895. It struck eight reales with the portrait of Ferdinand VII 1812-22; only the later dates (1819-22) are reasonably common. Many are very crude.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 27.07 g, .903 fine silver, .786 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: Cal. 414, KM 111.2.
