Aureo sale 246, lot 624
This specimen was lot 624 in Aureo y Calicó sale 246 (Barcelona, September 2012), where it sold for 25 € (about $38 including buyer's fees). The catalog[1] noted,
"Felipe V (1700-1746). 1720. Valencia. 1 maravedí. MBC-. (Philip V, 1700-46, one maravedi of 1720, Valencia mint. About very fine.)"
This type was struck at Valencia 1719-20, Zaragoza 1719-20, Barcelona 1718-20 and Segovia 1720. The denomination does not seem to have been a success as no more were struck until 1745 (see KM 368). The mintmark, to the left of the shield on the obverse, appears to be a bat-like device rather than a "V".

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: copper.

Catalog reference: Cayón-8021, KM 317, Cal. 2022.
