Oaxaca (SUD/Morelos), Mexico, copper 8 reales, 1812, dots under bow, unlisted. As KM-233.5a but in copper; As CT-569 but in copper. 28.2 grams. So-called "SUD" coins seem to come two ways: very common or very rare. The latter is generally reserved for the silver specimens, but here we have one with a silver design but struck in copper, as it very clearly shows dots below the bow, per KM-233.5a. But here's a twist: Since this specimen is so well struck, it is clear now that the number of dots is 9, not 8 as listed in the KM reference, whose plate coin is too weak to show the 9th dot at the left end of the bow. In fact this coin is choice all over, with bold full inner details and clear borders of dots, attractive chocolate brown color, XF details but loaded with old scratches that may simply be adjustment marks due to the fact that the planchet was rather overweight compared to most SUDs. We will start it fairly low and see what happens!
