Aureo sale 261, lot 701
This specimen was lot 701 in Aureo sale 261 (Barcelona, July 2014), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted,
"1882*1882. Alfonso XII. MSM. 1 peseta. Buen ejemplar. Escasa así. MBC+/EBC-. (Alfonso XII, 1874-85, one peseta of 1882. Nice example, scarce thus, very fine to extremely fine.)"
This silver peseta, struck in Madrid in 1881-86, matches the contemporary French silver franc down to the odd .835 alloy. This type, with the whiskered portrait of the doomed Alfonso XII, is quite scarce in nice condition. An 1882/81 overdate is reported.

Recorded mintage: 3,506,000.

Specification: 5 g, .835 fine silver, reeded edge.

Catalog reference: Cayón-17491, Cal. 58, KM 686.
