from the Stack's Bowers 2017 Collector's Choice sale, lot 72673
Mexico SB517-72673r.jpg

This specimen was lot 72673 in Stack's Bowers Collectors Choice Online Auction (Santa Ana, CA, May 2017), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted, "MEXICO. Peso, 1883-CnD. NGC MS-62. VERY SCARCE date. Good strike, lightly toned with underlying luster." This specimen was struck at Culiacan in 1882. Mexico City is the commonest mint, followed by Guanajuato, Culiacan, Zacatecas (scarce), Hermosillo (rare), Alamos (rare) and Chihuahua (rare). Even the common dates have low mintages but the type was widely hoarded, making it reasonably available today.

Recorded mintage: unknown but likely about 1,000.

Specification: 1.69 g, .875 fine gold, .047 troy oz AGW.

Catalog reference: KM-410.2; Fr-160.
