Popayan, Colombia, 1/4 real, 1838, extremely rare, NGC VF 25, finest and only example in NGC census, Restrepo Plate. Restrepo-173.1; KM-90.2. Bold cornucopia above weaker but 100% certain date (of which Restrepo says only one or two are known), deeply toned, parts of rims weak (as made). The Popayan 1/4R of the Republic of New Granada, spanning the eight-year period of 1838-46, are all very rare as a type, this being the first and rarest date. It is the first example we have seen, and the first to be slabbed by NGC. NGC #5938639-007. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada collection and plated on page 159 of Restrepo's Coins of Colombia (2012) (stated on label).
