Medellin, Colombia, 5 decimos, 1886, 0.500/0.835, four stars on reverse, rare, encapsulated NGC AU 58. Restrepo-302.1; KM-161.2c. 13.1 grams. Muted luster under uneven pink toning, slightly weak in very centers but no marks or wear, choice grade. The NGC tag says "7 point stars" (on the obverse), which is irrelevant and does not mention the important variety of having four 5-point stars on the reverse, which is rare and represented by a single coin in the NGC census (at MS 62). NGC #2713825-015. Acquired from Oen Nelson ("Whitter collection") in 2005.
