A Beautiful 1834 Chile Volcano 2 Reales

Here is an iconic and popular issue from Chile, which features an erupting volcano. I know @Eddi has an extensive collection of these, although I do not know if he has the 2 Reales. The reported mintage on this piece is a mere 3,740.

This piece has wonderful original surfaces and I have been searching for one with this "circulation cameo" look since I learned this type existed. It doesn't help that I only get offered a couple per year! NGC graded this piece Fine-15.


Thank you @FrankH for selling me this piece at a very reasonable price - our transaction went very smoothly and I recommend him as a seller. He has some great world coins up in the BST!

    Lovely example of a very nice Type. Congratulations!

    In addition to my comments on C.T, let me add a comment regarding die marriages for this issue: 3 obverse and 3 reverse dies exist, and a total of 4 die marriages.
