The first specimen was lot 2847 in Ponterio sale 164 (New York, January 2012), where it sold for $747.50. The catalog description[1] noted, "MEXICO. Mexico City. 1/8 Real (Octavo), 1835. Nice strike, glossy brown surfaces. NGC MS-61 BN."

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 3.5 g, copper, 21 mm diameter.
