Mayari, Cuba, 10 centavos token with MORALES Ho in incuse box over denomination 10 and JUNIO on obverse and Bourbon arms on reverse, made from a Mexican Republic cap-and-rays 1 real (mid-1800s), very rare. 2.94 grams. Bold countermarks on obverse with traces of undercoin design still visible (also a few marks), strong details on reverse (VF with toning in crevices), a very rare and interesting emergency issue of some sort that is also seen in 1/2-real and 20-centavos denominations, the latter with more of the reverse design to show DE MAYARI below the arms, exact time period unknown but probably mid-1800s based on the host coins (latest we have seen being an 1850s-era US half dime), this cap-and-rays host particularly rare and desirable.
