Popayan, Colombia, 1/4 real, 1816, 1 over 2 in date (penultimate digit), mintmark PN, NGC AU 55, finest and only example in NGC census, Restrepo Plate. Restrepo-101.2; KM-67.2; Cal-283. Exceptional example with bold strike and only light high-point wear, the rims typically crude (as made) but the fields clean and smooth, scarce bold overdate (first we have handled, labeled as 1816/26 by NGC) that can be explained by the fact that it was struck by patriots after 1820. NGC #5938639-002. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada collection and plated on page 131 of Restrepo's Coins of Colombia (2012) (stated on label).
