An Important Durango Mint Cap & Rays Pattern Issue!
MEXICO. Silver-Plated Nickel 8 Reales Pattern, 1840-Do OMC. Durango Mint. NGC AU-55.
cf. KM-Pn59. RARE pattern striking for the Durango Mint. Struck without eagle's breast in full relief which is a common sight on the other examples either silvered bronze or silvered nickel (as the present example) patterns of this type. Edge is also incomplete with about a third of it not having reeding. Possessing an attractive steely gray appearance and some deep toning forming around devices and in protected areas. No surface issuea or detracting marks from handling are observed. An important opportunity for the specialist.
