Potosi, Bolivia, medallic 2 soles, 1852/1, Belzu / criminal, coin axis, reeded edge, NGC MS 64. Burnett-43 var (reeded edge); Fonrobert-9567 var (overdate). Obverse with seated Liberty, youth and baby looking toward radiant sun at right within legend LOS EMPLEADOS DE POTOSI at top and AL PRESIDENTE . M. Y. BELZU at bottom; reverse with fleeing criminal being chased off a cliff to right by a sword coming from clouds to left within legend LA PROVIDENCIA PERSIGUE EL CRIMEN with date 1852/1 at bottom, reeded edge (overdate and edge not mentioned on label). The inspiration for the fleeing criminal theme was the attempted assassination of Belzu on September 6, 1850. Incipient toning over ample luster, bold strike except for faint central weakness, no marks or wear, second finest in NGC census behind a single MS 65 that we know is a different variety (plain edge). NGC #5962267-003.
