DescriptionREPUBLICA 1/4 Real 1826-B.T.R., KM85.1, VF20 Details (damaged-bent) ANACS. As was the case with the Indian bust coins dated 1821 accompanied by the Ba designation, this series was severely afflicted with debased silver. Debased down from a legend standard of 88.5 percent silver, many appear to be only 20 percent - 40 percent silver plus mostly base metal. This problem was endemic to South America particularly Bolivia and Peru. This earliest and one-year-only type from the main Colombian mint at Bogota has the mintmark and assayer below the value indication. Restrepo ('89) correctly rates as RRRR. This piece may be slightly bent but its details are full and clear. There are probably fewer than ten extant.
