Mexico 1831 cuartilla rev JS.jpg

This specimen is from a type struck 1829-37 and is fairly available. It superseded a shortlived type that weighed 14 g (KM 357). This issue was accompanied by copper octavos; both were issued in an attempt to drive out the abusive minting of state and municipal coppers. The "JM" counterstamp is noted in Bailey[2] as a hacienda mark, yet it is common enough that the SCWC mentions it and assigns it a catalog number (noted below).

Specification: copper, 7 g, 27 mm diameter.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Catalog reference: KM-358a.1 (with counterstamp).
