Silver proof pattern struck at the Heaton Mint (England) for Bogota, Colombia, 20 centavos, 1900, reeded edge, very rare, NGC PF 62 ("top pop"), Restrepo Plate. Restrepo-78 (p. 254); KM-Pn81. 5.64 grams; 23mm. Bold strike, brilliant luster, no toning, just some faint wispy hairlines, clearly superior to Eldorado's SP58 (PCGS) and apparently more brilliant than the lightly toned PF 62 with which it is tied in the NGC census (but with slightly different description) that we offered in Auction 24, a perfect companion-piece to lot 906 above (50c). As Restrepo points out, the obverse of this piece was eventually used for the 5 pesos papel moneda pattern of 1907 struck in Bogota (see lot 911 below). If KM's assessment of "three known" is correct, the entire census is accounted for here. NGC #5931969-020. Pedigreed to the Nueva Granada collection and plated on page 254 of Restrepo's Coins of Colombia (2012) (stated on label).
