This specimen was lot 21393 in Stack's Bowers ANA sale (Philadelphia, August 2018), where it sold for $1,200. The catalog description[1] noted, "MEXICO. 10 Pesos, 1887-ZsZ. PCGS AU-58 Secure Holder. From a mintage of only 2,330 pieces. Wonderfully detailed with surfaces that have been slightly brightened by past handling. A RARE date." The Zacatecas mint produced this denomination steadily during 1871-95. Few dates obtain a premium in the SCWC tho many must be rare.

Recorded mintage: 2,330.

Catalog reference: Fr-136; KM-413.9.
