Nicaragua, lead 10 pesos, no date (ca. 1927), Augusto Sandino guerilla issue, very rare. KM-Tn1; Rulau-Nic-9. 21.99 grams. Rather white and oxidized (puffy) but with most details still clear (impossible to grade), a couple old scratches on SANDINO side, fascinating relic from the rebellion of 1927-33 that pitted forces under revolutionary leader Augusto Cesar Sandino against the U.S. military, Sandino eventually being assassinated but still revered today as a national hero and symbol of resistance to U.S. domination in Central America. Tokens like this one were exchanged for goods from local merchants.
