Mexico 1910-M 5 pesos
This specimen was lot 4497 in Goldberg sale 65 (Los Angeles, September 2011), where it sold for $230. The catalog description noted, "Mexico. 5 Pesos, 1910-M. Head of Hidalgo left. Reverse: Eagle. NGC graded AU-58." The type is familiar to bullion investors as the 1955 five pesos has been restruck in large quantities by the Mexican government. However, the 1910 is not to be found on every street corner.
