Choice Toned 1683 Double Pistareen, ex Eric Newman

SOLD

Ex. Eric P. Newman Collection, with his original paper envelope and a 80 year old price of $2.50.

Details

Spain. 1683 BR 4 reales. Segovia mint. Carlos II. VF-25 (NGC). Beautifully toned dusky gray with pastel rose, gold, and pale green highlights. The surfaces are lively and suggest hints of lustre in protected areas despite some significant wear. Choice and free of notable flaws, with a glass picking up just some very minor old scratches on the lion in the southwest quadrant of the obverse. Collectors have long regarded the 4 reales of the toughest of the Spanish colonial denominations, and the same holds true for the products of mainland mints like Segovia. Sometimes called a "double pistareen" in early America, this piece would have circulated as two-fifths of a dollar. Rarely are they seen this attractive and original, and with this sort of notable provenance.
