from the Stack's Bowers 2017 NYINC sale, lot 6964
Mexico SB117-6964r.jpg

This specimen was lot 6964 in Stack's Bowers NYINC sale (New York, January 2017), where it sold for $235. The catalog description[1] noted, "MEXICO. 8 Reales, 1860-DoCP. NGC MS-63. Tied with two other examples at this numeric grade with only two pieces certified finer (MS-64). From the Estate Collection of Dr. Richard Doty." The Durango mint struck eight reales 1824-95 and this date is listed as fairly common. An 1860/59 overdate earns a premium.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

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

Catalog reference: KM-377.4; DP-Do40.
