Colombia, brass pattern struck in 1918 for a 10 pesos (gold) of 1919 and 1924, struck on a US Army Regiment 47 pin (unique), reeded edge. Per Restrepo-page 278. 7.9 grams. Fascinating piece, UNC with original color and luster but intentional scratches (as if to say "not for use"), also with stress cracks and some underlying detail from the host, which is one of the more unusual planchet choices we have ever seen, surely an item of great interest to Colombian collectors.
