Cuba, proof "souvenir" peso ("Bay of Pigs" exile issue), 1965, lettered edge, NGC PF 67, finest and only example in NGC census. KM-XM6. Mirrorlike fields and frosty details, with lovely blue toning on reverse, scarce issue struck as a fund-raiser for the Agency for Cuban Numismatics in Exile in the design of the famous 1897 "souvenir peso" issued by the Cuban Revolutionary Junta in New York but with incuse lettering on edge EN MEMORIA LA BAHIA DE LOS COCHINOS 1961 1965 (In Memory of the Bay of Pigs 1961-1965), apparently scarcer than the reeded-edge variety (a plain-edge version also known). NGC #4739223-003.
