This specimen is a somewhat scarce date of a series struck 1864-1865 at the Guanajuato mint. This ten centavos piece replaced the silver one real struck since colonial times. Several transitional designs were issued 1863-70, including this one by the Maximilian regime (note the crown on the eagle's head). It, in turn, was replaced by a ten centavos piece with a redesigned reverse in 1898.

Specification: 2.71 g, 0.903 fine silver, 0.078 troy oz ASW.

Recorded mintage: 45,000.

Catalog reference: KM 386.
