Mexico City, Mexico, 2 reales, Charles-Joanna, "Early Series, assayer P to right, mintmark M to left (oMo-oPo), panel leaning left, rare, ex-Jones (Plate Coin). Nesmith-25 for type/25b; Cal-123; S-M4; KM-11. 6.63 grams. A choice AU example with deep, rich toning all over, full details including legends, and most likely from the "Golden Fleece wreck" (ca. 1550). Its real beauty to specialists, however, lies in its die linkage to coins created by the subsequent assayer F, and it is one of only three known to illustrate that linkage. Pedigreed to the Dr. Peter Jones collection, plated on page 65 of his book The First Coins of the Americas (2020).
