Bogota, Colombia, 2 reales, 1819JF, Nueva Granada ("Libertad Americana"), denomination in legend, struck over a Cartagena "imitation cob" 2 reales with fantasy date 182, unique, NGC F 15, Restrepo Plate Coin. Restrepo-139.2; KM-unl. Among the necessity-issue overstrikes mentioned in the previous lot is this (also) unique piece whose host-coin is a Cartagena 2R "imitation cob" (Restrepo 118) with distinctive lions and castles (in improper quadrants) plus fantasy date 182 very prominent in centers while the new legends are also nearly full, including date and assayer, all nicely toned with a couple of light, old clips in edge for standardization. Note: Restrepo catalogs this host as Caracas in error based on the fantasy date, which was used in both places. To our knowledge this coin is the only known example with Cartagena 2R host. NGC #5937428-003. Pedigreed to the Esmeralda Collection (stated on special label) and Plate Coin on p. 147 of Restrepo's Coins of Colombia (2012) (stated on label).
