Quito, Ecuador, 2 reales, 1834/5GJ, unique overdate, no dot after CONSTITUCION, encapsulated NGC VF details / surface hairlines. KM-unl (cf. 14). A fascinating backdating (as the no-dot variety is characteristic of 1835 but not 1834) struck during a period of civil war in Ecuador, and a nice example too, with light green-gold toning and VF+ details, no hairlines at all but kept in the NGC holder to affirm the overdate muling, the first and only specimen known so far (discovery coin).
