Lisbon, Portugal, copper 40 reis (pataco), Joao VI, 1811, encapsulated NGC AU 55 BN. KM-345.1 (?). This lot is a bit of a mystery, for the slab is of double thickness, obscuring the edge of the piece and making it impossible to weigh or evaluate for thickness, although almost certainly it is a pattern or piedfort (especially since the surfaces are a little grainy and have a trial appearance) despite the lack of that information on the tag. Therefore it is probably of more than token value, but until the next owner cracks it or resubmits it, we will never know for sure.
