Brazil (Rio mint), 960 reis, 1820-R, struck over a British Honduras 6 shilling 1 penny (crowned-GR countermark, 1810-18) on a Spanish colonial (probably Mexico) bust 8 reales of Ferdinand VII, unique. KM-326.1. 27.0 grams. Attractively toned XF with two significant elements of the original design peeking through: the bust of Ferdinand VII, and a clear countermark with incuse script-GR below crown (for Georgius Rex) on the host coin for circulation in British Honduras. To our knowledge this is the only specimen of this combination, as the countermark itself (KM-4.2, Pridmore-3) is rare and highly sought, and it should have significant appeal to both Brazilian and West Indies collectors. With old (1950s?) pedigree tag from COLECAO EDISON URRUTIGARAY LANCA BRASIL in Porto Alegre.
