Argentina (occupation in Paraguay after the War of the Triple Alliance), copper 20 centavos, "D.O" (Departamento Occidental) and arms counterstamp (1874-78) on a Paraguay 2 centesimos of 1870, very rare, PCGS VF30, c/m XF detail. Janson-5.2; Pratt-M01 (under Paraguay). Incomplete peripheral details on host but date still visible, bold script "D.O" above denomination "20" on one side and incuse Argentina arms within wreath on other side (see previous lot for background). Considering that both this lot and the previous lot were denominated the same despite different-sized hosts, it would appear they were basically unofficial tokens with a nominal value. Both types are so rare that only a small handful are known, and quite possibly this is the first time the issue has been offered at auction. PCGS #36247385.
