Mexico SB1115-42630r.jpg

This specimen was lot 42630 in Stack's Bowers Winter sale (Baltimore, November 2015), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted, "MEXICO. 2 1/2 Pesos, 1884-MoM. NGC AU Details--Removed From Jewelry. Krause indicates the coin is a better date across all grade levels. Sharply struck." The type is also recorded from Culiacan, Durango, Guanajuato, Alamos, Hermosillo and Zacatecas but Mexico City is by far the most prolific issuer. The SCWC awards this date a premium. The series, never popular, ended in 1893.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 4.23 g, .875 fine gold, .119 troy oz AGW.

Catalog reference: Fr-148; KM-411.5.
