    1818 New Spain Jola, AU Details
    Small Planchet, W-8540

    1818 1/2 RL New Spain (Texas) Jola Half Real, Small Planchet -- Environmental Damage -- NGC Details. AU. W-8540, R.6. Ex: Donald G. Partrick Collection. In 1958, members of the Zotz family discovered a group of crude copper tokens in a construction area near San Antonio, Texas. Research suggested they were struck by Jose Antonio de la Garza circa 1818 to pay workers at his ranch. Multiple die pairs were used; the present lot was struck from the same obverse die as lot 2221 in our 2008 Central States Signature. Less than 100 pieces are known for all varieties, which also includes 1817-dated pieces, and large planchet pieces dated 1818. Original survivors exhibit granularity from environmental exposure. This is a sharp example with bold legends. The moderately granular but minimally abraded surfaces are toned cobalt-blue and lavender-brown.
    From The Donald G. Partrick Collection.
