This specimen was lot 2740 in Ponterio sale 164 (New York, January 2012), where it sold for $730.25. The catalog description[1] noted, "MEXICO. Culiacan. 8 Reales, 1877-CnJA. Scarce assayer and a truly exceptional example of this issue. Sharply struck and very attractive. NGC MS-64 PL." The Culiacan mint struck eight reales 1846-97 and this date is common tho the assayer is scarce. The SCWC also mentions a scarce error with mintmark "Gn" instead of "Cn".

Recorded mintage: 339,000 (assayers CG and JA).

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