Medellin, Colombia, 5 pesos, 1863-M, encapsulated NGC MS-62, extremely rare and choice grade. Sedwick-36. Restrepo-329. KM-140. Legend with ESTADOS UNIDOS DE COLOMBIA, choice strike and exceptional flashy luster, an acknowledged rarity whose last and possibly only known auction appearance was an XF in Stack's on September 16, 1982, that sold for $7,150, now bested by our coin by several grades, ours being the only known specimen ever graded by NGC. RRRR in Sedwick, of course, but possibly not a one-year type as published there, for Frank's private notes mention an 1864 of this type on the market in 1994. Don Canaparo 1984.
