Choice Mint State 1726/1 Spanish 1 Real

SOLD

Details

Spain. 1726/1 A 1 real. Madrid mint. MS-64 (NGC). An exceptional mint state example of the Spanish half pistareen, the denomination Jefferson termed "perfectly familiar to us all" and used as the inspiration for its identically-valued American relative, the dime. Frosty and lustrous, with a distinct curvature on its vertical axis from its roller die method of manufacture. The toning is original and attractive, mottled silver gray with deeper tones and undertones of gold. The overdate is bold to the naked eye, with the 6 of the date clearly punched over a 1. A superb quality example of this denomination, one commonly seen in early America both intact and cut in half (each half circulating as 1/20 of a dollar or, in the Federal era, a half dime).
