This specimen is a common date of a series struck 1873-1904 for Mexico at the Culiacan mint. 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. Numerous date varieties exist; the catalog lists a repunched mintmark, Cn/Mo.

Recorded mintage: 3,614.

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

Catalog reference: KM 410.2.
