Bogota, bronze 2-1/2 centavos, 1901, Lazareto, extremely rare, NGC MS 63, finest and only example in NGC census, Restrepo Plate. Restrepo-360.1; KM-L1. Light copper color with traces of original red and luster, typically crude rims (as made) and minor die-cracks, clearly superior to and remarkably quite different in color from the only other example we have seen (Sedwick Auction 11, lot 1147, hammered for $6650) among the "twelve known" cited in Restrepo, by far the rarest denomination in a series of coins struck specially for leprosariums. NGC #5938641-015. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada collection and plated on page 216 of Restrepo's Coins of Colombia (2012) (stated on label).
