Mexico City, Mexico, 1 real, Charles-Joanna, "Early Series," assayer P to right, mintmark M to left (oMo-oPo), motto as PLVS in right-leaning rhomboid panel with single annulets on either side, very rare, NGC VF details / stained, Nesmith Plate Coin (drawing and photo). Nesmith-24e; Cal-63; S-M4; KM-unl (7 for type). 3.23 grams. A slightly off-planchet strike makes the coin legends tough to decipher although the all-important terminal letters are visible. Overall a frosty tone with some central weakness, rich in detail elsewhere. Tts true value is the fact that it is a Nesmith plate coin. NGC #6448168-028. Pedigreed to the Clyde Hubbard Collection of Mexican Charles-Joanna Coinage (stated on label), plated as a drawing on page 90 and as a photo on Plate IV of Robert Nesmith's The Coinage of the First Mint of the Americas at Mexico City, 1536-1572 (1955). Accompanied by original tag or holder from Clyde Hubbard.
