Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, 4 reales, Charles-Joanna, assayer F to the left, extremely rare, ex-Jones (Plate Coin). S-SD1; Cal-140; KM-35. 11.42 grams. Broad flan with bold legends and clear inner details despite very light surface corrosion (VF details, slightly weak in centers), contrastingly toned, a unique combination of Estrella #8 (obverse with F to left and oIIII to right) and #2 (reverse with P to left, S to right and motto PLV in between), a few tiny edge-splits, overall a rather presentable type-coin for this elusive issue. Pedigreed to the Dr. Peter Jones collection, plated on page 122 of his book The First Coins of the Americas (2020), and to the Ponterio auction of August 2000, with original lot-tag #598, also to our Auction 8, with original lot-tag #1547, and to our Auction 15, with original lot-tag #1069.
