    Description

    La Rioja. Republic 8 Reales 1838-R MS65 ★ NGC, La Rioja mint, KM8. Coin Rotation variety. An undeniable "monster" of a coin, and without question the most stunning example of this visually captivating type known. Bathed in scintillating tone, the side featuring the Argentine coat of arms with sunface above displays warm yellow and orange color in the centers, while the edges showcase a mixture of blue-green and maroon. On the other side, green and yellow patina prevails, with small pockets of brilliance and underlying luster that imparts impressive luminosity. The specialist will also recognize the strike as being impressively sharp for the issue, as incompleteness of the mountains is often observed. Altogether, a transcendent coin whose appearance draws parallels to a work of art. One of our favorite coins in the D. Moore Collection.
