Portugal 1766 400 reis rev DSLR.jpg

This type is listed for 1762-75 and this date is fairly common. A few (KM 255.2), struck 1762-63, spelled the king's name with a "I". The gold 400 réis was called a pinto and traded for 480 réis. The silver 400 réis was called a cruzado novo. Altho this type has a Davenport number, it's too small to be called a crown.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 14.7 g, .917 fine silver.

Catalog reference: KM 255.1, Dav-1630.
