    Description

    Medellin four-star 5 Decimos 1886, KM161.2c, VF35 ANACS. Estados Unidos-Medellin. Transitional series style with four prominent stars flanking the denomination and mint name on the backside. 0,500 fineness. Re-engraved over prior 0,835 standard. Edge with PATRIA (patriotism) instead of LEI (law). This is the only 1886 sub-type with four large stars in the reverse legend, two of which flank the mint's name. With seven-pointed stars, as is standard, as opposed to the eight-pointed stars shown in KM. The Whittier collection had a lovely specimen but its result was ruined by having been listed under lot 16746 while its photo appears on the next page under 16747. The Whittier piece cost its owner over two thousand dollars in a Colombia club auction.
    From The Dana Roberts Collection.
