    Description

    CUARTILLA 1/4 Real Study Group, Dana Robert's collection included some of the rarest among the obscure South American 1/4 Reales (known as "cuartilla" which means one-fourth). Factually several brought over $1000 each while many brought in the multiple hundreds. A couple of those are represented by duplicates while other unusual or elusive items are included in this lot which contains the entire remainder of his Colombian cuartilla accumulation. First is a well worn Popayan 1826. Then a likely contemporary phony Bogota 1836 using the unique style of the 1826 B-RS Bogota type. Bogota 1844 (2), 1846 Ba (holed), 1847 Ba (2), 1849 Pn (3; two nice), 1850 Ba (2; one holed), 1850 Pn (5). From the Estados Unidos de Colombia period are: BOGOTA 1863, 1864 (5 pcs), 1866, 1867 (2), 1869, 1870 (rare) and 1881 (usual fake). POPAYAN: 1863 (2; both nice), 1864 (3), 1865 (2; one nice), 1872 (clear date), 1873 (2; both nice), 1874 (clear date), 1875 (3; nicest may be 5/3) and final genuine year of 1881 (3 pcs). Bogota 2 1/2 Centavos: 1875 (2), 1876, 1877 (3), 1878 (7), 1879 ( 14 samples !!), 1880 (7 pcs) and 1881. Added are the one-year-type coppers of 1885 (6 pcs) and CuNi types dated 1881 (14 of small diameter and 5 of larger size). Thus total pieces are 106 (approximate count and thus not guaranteed). Quality is typical for widely circulated examples of the included types of the era; some may be choice for the type while others exhibit various typical small flaws (a couple may have holes or mount traces). Sold As Is, NO Returns.
    Pedigreed To The Dana Roberts Variety and Study Accumulation.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
