Service Catalog # 259469
Denomination 8 Reales

Description Carlos III 8 Reales 1772-P, KM36.1, XF45 NGC. A fully original coin with aged patina and excellent eye appeal. The obverse shows some light handling on the bust while the reverse is virtually blemish-free. This is the first date of the bust style coinage for Guatemala and is highly elusive in all grades. To find an example in XF is most unexpected. Realized $1,762.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
