Medellin, Colombia, 20 centavos, 1886, very rare, NGC VF details / cleaned, Restrepo Plate. Restrepo-291.1; KM-178.3a. Very rare one-year type struck in 0.500 fineness (the only such coin of this denomination), the debased silver manifest in a light rosy hue, with muted luster and rather nice strike with full details, light porosity on part of reverse, overall more like AU in our estimation, arguably comparable to the Eldorado specimen that hammered for $2400 in 2018 (Restrepo estimates $5000 for XF). NGC #5938641-014. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada collection (stated on label).
