    Description

    Cordoba. Provincial silvered-copper Specimen Pattern 8 Reales 1852 SP63 NGC, Paris mint, KM-Pn11 var. (listed only in copper), Fonrobert-Unl., Ulex-Unl., Guttag-Unl., Janson-4.1. 21.16gm. A captivating Specimen representative of the type, extremely rare in this format. A razor-sharp strike provides instant verification of the additional care and attention to detail that accompanied this piece's production, resulting in near-medallic features that project boldly toward the viewer. It speaks volumes to the scarcity of this Pattern issue that this exact coin, previously offered as part of the Millennia Collection in May of 2008, remains the only such example recognized by NGC, with an example altogether missing from the Fonrobert, Ulex, and Guttag collections, and no such specimens occurring in auction records of the last several decades. Indeed, we have been able to locate only a single example of the smaller 2 Reales silvered-copper Pattern. Rarity aside, the sheer visual eye appeal of the offering propels it into an elite tier. The surfaces appear original in hand, decorated in interwoven metallic tones, and blessed with subtle peripheral touches of tangerine and seafoam iridescence. Indeed, all these factors combine in this single coin to render it a unique opportunity, one that cannot be ignored by those collectors who recognize the extraordinary nature of this singular offering.
