    Stamped on Cut-Quarter of 8 Reales
    Second Issue Stamped Over First Issue

    (1811-15) New Orleans, Louisiana, Planters Bank, HT-A126, R.7, AU58 NGC. Counterstamps on quarter of 8 Reales. Brunk obverse B, reverse 3. This piece is plated in the 2003 second edition of the Brunk reference. Struck over Chihuahua, Mexico Revolutionary era 8 Reales of 1810-1813 with its own MVA counterstamp of Monclova. The initial rectangular PB punch and round eagle punch are partially visible beneath a new PB punch. The first issue stamps, where legible, are sharp, and the second issue stamps are equally sharp. Although cataloged as part of the Hard Times tokens, these Planters Bank counterstamps date two decades earlier to the first half of the 1810 decade. These important historical pieces take the collector back to the time of Andrew Jackson's victory at the Battle of New Orleans.
