Áureo y Calicó sale 347, lot 370
This specimen was lot 370 in Áureo y Calicó sale 347 (Barcelona, March 2020), where it sold for €160 (about US$211 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1823. Fernando VII. Madrid. AJ. 2 reales. Bella. Ex Colección Mariana Pineda, Áureo 16/11/2005, nº 334. Rara así. EBC+. (kingdom of Spain, Ferdinand VII, two reales of 1823, Madrid mint. Handsome, rare thus, choice extremely fine.)"
This type was struck in Madrid (shown here) 1814-33, in Seville 1815 and 1820-33 and in Cadiz 1810-12 only. Lower in fineness than contemporary Latin American issues, they were discounted in international trade. Tho priced fairly cheaply in the SCWC, this type is very difficult to find at U. S. coin shows.

Recorded mintage: unknown.
