This specimen was lot 396 in Ponterio sale 182 (New York, January 2014), where it sold for $13,512.50. The catalog description[1] noted, "CHILE. 8 Reales, 1788-DA. NGC MS-62. Finest Certified Chile 8 Reales of Charles III (1759-88). Lustrous and attractive with virtually no contact marks." Despite what seems to be a fairly substantial recorded mintage and nearly continuous production during 1773-89, Santiago portrait eight reales of Charles III are almost as scarce as pillar dollars from that mint.

Recorded mintage: 187,000.

Specification: 27.07 g, .896 fine silver, .780 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: Cayón-12131, KM-31; FC-26; EI-37.
