    Afonso VI revalidation 500 Reis ND (1663) VF35 NGC, KM36, Russo-083, Gomes-45.03. A Portugal Joao IIII Porto 400 Reis countermarked with a crowned 500 stamp per law of March 22, 1663 (and later per edict of July 7, 1663 in Brazil) to raise its value 25% up to 500 Reis. Host coin Very Fine, countermark Extremely Fine and choice. A most attractive specimen of this charming countermarked issue, on a very scarce host coin, substantially more elusive than its Lisbon counterpart. Many of the recently offered examples have been either low grade or sea-salvaged, making the present example very desirable. Note that KM has the wrong plate for this issue since it illustrates the later 1688 overstruck issue (see our description of following lot).
