Mexico City, Mexico, 2 reales, Charles-Joanna, "Early Series," assayer G between bottoms of pillars, assayer M/F to the left, mintmark M to the right (oM/Fo-oMo), motto as PLV in right-leaning rhomboid panel with single annulets on either side, rare, NGC MS 61, finest and only example in NGC census. Nesmith-10a type; Cal-89; S-M2; KM-unl (11 for type). 6.78 grams. This coin represents the apex of rarity and beauty, where rarity is represented by the overassayer "oM/Fo" in an otherwise small population of coins, and beauty by a bold strike, full legends and interiors, and silvery appearance (hence the high grade). Purchased well after Nesmith's book was published, thus it could not be included as a distinct variety. NGC #6448168-049. Pedigreed to the Clyde Hubbard Collection of Mexican Charles-Joanna Coinage (stated on label). Accompanied by original tag or holder from Clyde Hubbard.
