    Description

    Popayan 2 Reales 1880 , KM162, VF30 details (cleaned) ANACS. This mint struck only a very few silver coins, beginning in 1810-1811, and ending this year except for one highly debased cuartilla the following year. Probably no Popayan Estados Unidos issue should be labeled as common. In its final year of non-cuartilla silver, it produced two enigmatic types for unimaginable reasons. The Cincuenta Centavos (similar circulation value as Cinco Decimos) and this somewhat debased Dos Reales. This issue emerged since it required less repunching of the 1848 pattern dies still in their mint's shop!! This example has luster hidden in its legends and is very attractive. Nearly Extremely Fine as correctly determined by ANACS but curiously toned yellow which leads us to suspect 0,666 fineness.
    From The Dana Roberts Collection.
