Note Countermarks: Eagle's head, r.(= cmk 4), on the obv., on 24, 51. R (= cmk 33) on the rev., on 38, 41 ,80. A (= cmk 14) on the rev., on 40.L A (= cmk 54) on the rev., on 2, 42. Monogram(= cmk 71) on the obv., on 72. Monogram (= cmk 73) on the rev., on 64. DD (= cmk 47) on the obv., on 69. Also Guadán 27(= cmk 93) (not verified). On some coins only II V is legible, instead of II VIR; we thought that it is because some letters were filledup with metal (II V R on Vico 9 Oct. 2012, lot 451, ex HSA 23173), or that the minting was made with irregu- lar pressure, since Hurtado (coins 376a and b) includes coins struck with the same dies bearing the complete legend, for example compare Vico 4 Nov. 2004, lot 32 (= ACIP 3161o) and coin FV 429-15-2.
Correction Corrected coin-type (post publication)
