DescriptionLa Rioja. Provincial 8 Reales 1840-R XF45 PCGS, La Rioja mint, KM10. This rare one-year type is scarcely seen on the market and represents only the second example of this revised legend variant that we have sold. This offering is clearly the superior of the two, both technically and strictly aesthetically. While some weakness is visible near the date, the surfaces are surprisingly free of abrasions, even under strict inspection, with a lovely balance of eye appeal overall, partly a consequence of the strike, partly of the well-dispersed toning accents which emphasize the boldness of the devices throughout. All stated, an example worth a premium bid.
