Peru 1853 cuartilla rev DSLR.jpg

This type was struck at Lima 1826-56. The date is listed in the SCWC as common, tho all Peruvian minors are scarcer in nice condition than the catalog values would indicate; among the quarter reales, only the 1855 is frequently seen. Many overdates are listed, for 1853, no regular dates are listed, only 1853/31 and 1853/1.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: .84 g, .903 fine silver, .024 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: KM 143.1.
