The first specimen was lot 21596 in Heritage sale 3010 (Boston, August 2010), where it sold for $2,185.

Guanajuato produced this denomination 1870-1900 in sufficient numbers that it is considered a common date for the type. Worn specimens are unusual but cleaned, nicked and damaged specimens less so.

Recorded mintage: 7,000.

Specification: 33.84 g, .875 fine gold, .952 troy oz AGW.
