Costa Rica, 2 reales, "lion" countermark (Type VI, 1849-57) on a Great Britain shilling, George IV, 1825, NGC F 12, c/s XF strong. KM-95. Deeply punched and 100% fully detailed countermark on neck of George IV, the host with full details for the grade, nicely toned all over with a few darker spots. Note: The 8th edition (2015) of Krause-Mishler's Standard Catalog of World Coins / 1800s erroneously attributes this countermark to Type VII, unfortunately perpetuated by some auction listings but at least shown correctly at NGC. NGC #5846759-006.
