Spain 1853-Ba 8 maravedis
This is a very late date for this pre-decimal denomination and from a mint that did not normally strike this denomination. This type was struck at Jubia 1836-50 and at Barcelona (shown here) 1852-58. It varies from the earlier type (KM 512) by the addition of the word "CONST" in the obverse legend.
Recorded mintage: unknown but scarce.
Catalog reference: KM 531.1.
