    Republic silvered-bronze Specimen Essai Obverse & Reverse Uniface Trial Peso Pair 1873 SP62 PCGS, Paris mint, KM-TS7 & TS8. By Albert Barre. Created during the process of preparing patterns for the Medellin mint peso of 1873 that was never struck for general circulation. Each trial displays a full strike, with the reverse remaining without design, the blank dies showing only heavy swirling die polish in the fields. On their faces, light tone is observed and blends with handling that defines the grade. Typically only offered as an obverse of the type, making the complete pair quite rare and very desirable.
