Mexico City, Mexico, 1 real, Charles-Joanna, "Early Series," assayer F to right, mintmark M to left (oMo-oFo), panel leaning left, very rare, ex-Rudman, ex-Jones (Plate Coin). Nesmith-14 type; Cal-138; S-M3; KM-unl. Despite the high points on this AXF-details coin being lightly corroded and mostly toned as from an unidentified ca.-1554 wreck off Santo Domingo, the legends are full and legible, thus we are able to match the dies to an example from the next assayer, G. This assayer F is very hard to find in any denomination, with less than a dozen known in the 1R. Pedigreed to the Dr. Peter Jones collection, plated on page 71 of his book The First Coins of the Americas (2020), and to the Isaac Rudman numismatic cabinet (Heritage auction of April 2018, lot #31264.
