Mexico City, Mexico, 2 reales, Charles-Joanna, "Early Series," assayer G at bottom between pillars, mintmark M over previous assayer F/P to right of shield, unique for this denomination. Nesmith-10 for type; S-M2; KM-11. 6.4 grams. Full legends, choice pillars, well-detailed but lightly corroded shield (XF+ overall), tiny edge-split, nicely toned. This M/F/P multiple over-punching was previously known in 4R and 1R, and in fact was the key to deciphering the progression of assayers from P to F to G; this 2R specimen, however, appears to be the first example known. From the "Golden Fleece wreck" (ca. 1550).
