Mexico City, Mexico, 1/2 real, Charles-Joanna, "Early Series," assayer R (Gothic), very rare, ex-Jones (Plate Coin). Nesmith-2 for type/2; Cal-168; S-M1; KM-6. 1.42 grams. A slightly different variety from lot 443 in our Auction 27 of May 2020, which hammered for $32,500, this coin has the same virtue of being struck from all-Gothic punches brought from Spain, undoubtedly among the first emissions from the Mexico City mint in 1536, a very rare denomination, non-toned VF with scratches and marks on pillars side, nearly full legends. Pedigreed to the Dr. Peter Jones collection, plated on page 58 of his book The First Coins of the Americas (2020), and to the Ponterio auction of April 2006, with original lot-tag #380.
