Mexico City, Mexico, 1 real, Charles-Joanna, "Late Series," assayer not visible, cut down to size and precise weight of a 1/2 real and countermarked with a rampant lion in crenellated border (currently unattributed and probably rare). 1.4 grams. Perfectly round, with edges clearly trimmed centuries ago to make the coin a half real, with the mysterious countermark fully visible on one of the host coin's pillars, faint oM mintmark on other side, the host no better than VG but the countermark at least Fine, all deeply old-toned, definitely worth specialized study.
