Popayan, Colombia, 1/2 real, 1841VU/RU, very rare, NGC VF details / cleaned. Restrepo-178.9; KM-unl (96.2 for type). Fully detailed but somewhat crude (weak center and laminations on reverse, uneven rims, bits of encrustation), lustrous here and there, the all-important over-assayer (five known, according to Restrepo, who attributed this coin) not mentioned on label but pieces of an under-letter are definitely visible. NGC #5938639-015. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada collection (stated on label).
