Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, 2 reales, Charles-Joanna, assayer F to right (rotated), very rare, ex-Jones (Plate Coin). S-SD1; Cal-109; KM-unl. 4.37 grams. Very attractive VF, nicely toned, with some bold legend in a mix of Gothic and Latin letters, fully detailed interiors (lions and castles in proper quadrants flanked by denomination II and upside-down assayer F on obverse, pillars with backwards S to left and D to right and PL in between on reverse), lightly shaved around the edge but particularly rare as non-salvage. Pedigreed to the Dr. Peter Jones collection, plated on page 124 of his book The First Coins of the Americas (2020), and to the Ponterio auction of March 1998 (lot #2335) and to our Auction 7, with original lot-tag #1133.
