    Description

    Cap & Rays 8 Reales 1847 C-CE, KM-377.3, XF and weakly struck in the centers. Mike Dunigan and J.B. Parker in Resplendores state, "This year is rare and by far the most difficult date to obtain from this mint. It is one of those coins that has not been properly recognized and turns up missing in even the most advanced collections. The coin is usually found less than Very Fine. Even the higher grade specimens are plagued with weak strikes and often planchet problems. A true, high grade, problem-free example would be a real prize." This piece has a weak center on the reverse, but the obverse center is fairly bold with full LIBERTAD, the surfaces have no major flan flaws and there is considerable remaining luster. Undoubtedly, one of the finer examples extant.
