Honduras, 10 centavos, 1895/1, denomination 10/UN, NGC AU 53, finest and only known specimen in NGC and PCGS censuses. KM-55.3. 2.42 grams. Perhaps the pinnacle of slipshod production at the Tegucigalpa mint at the end of the 19th century is this strange muling of an 1871 10c obverse with an UN CENTAVO reverse from 1891 reworked with "10" over "UN" and placement of an S inside the O (in addition to the overdate, mistakenly called 1895/71 in KM), this specimen with luster and clear details (minimal wear), surely the finest known anywhere but currently the only example on record at NGC or PCGS. NGC #2741447-008.
