Mexico City, Mexico, 4 reales, Charles-Joanna, "Late Series," assayer L/S to right, mintmark M to left (M-L/S), extremely rare, NGC XF 45, ex-Kent Ponterio, ex-Rudman, ex-Jones (Plate Coin). Nesmith-unl; Cal-unl; S-M8; KM-unl. 13.65 grams. This coin has it all: two important pedigrees, beautiful strike (on a large planchet), rarity (only two known per previous auctions), and connection to the rarest assayer of the "Late Series" coins. While the shield side is slightly off-center, legends are full and well struck, and the toning is very attractive, a prize coin for the discerning collector. Pedigreed to the Dr. Peter Jones collection (stated on label), plated on page 108 of his book The First Coins of the Americas (2020), and to the Isaac Rudman numismatic cabinet (Heritage auction of April 2018, lot #31310) and to the Kent Ponterio collection (Ponterio auction of August 2009, lot #9165). NGC #4173199-019.
