Brazil (Bahia mint), 4000 reis, Joao Prince Regent, 1811, dots flanking date, encapsulated NGC MS 62, second finest known in NGC census. Russo-550; KM-235.1. Spectacular natural smoky toning with uniquely iridescent orange patina, one of the most beautiful 4000 reis of this period and certainly a standout in this collection. It should also be noted that this coin is one of only two listed in the current NGC census of gradable (and of course genuine) specimens. This coin must be viewed in person, as even the best digital images can't do this amazing piece justice. Pedigreed to the New England Collection.
