Peru 1789 8 reales rev Goldberg 72-5992.jpg

This specimen was lot 5992 in Goldberg sale 72 (Los Angeles, February 2013), where it sold for $287.50. The catalog description[1] noted, "Peru. 8 Reales, 1789-IJ (Lima). Charles III. Very scarce last year of issue. NGC graded About Uncirculated, Details (Surface Hairlines). The Victor Jaramillo Collection." This type was struck 1772-89 for Charles III and supplanted the pillar dollar. A slight debasement accompanied the design change. Later issues for 1789 were struck 1789-91 for Charles IV as a transitional type until hubs with the bust of Charles IV were available.
