Dos Reales for Fiesta Tuesday

in SteemLeo2 months ago

Look at this beautiful specimen of a Carlos IV Reales!


Obverse:

  • Bust of Charles IV facing right
  • Lettering: CAROLUS·IIII·DEI·GRATIA·1808· ; Translation: Carlos 4th by the grace of God

* * * * *

* * * * *
Reverse:
  • Coat of arms: A pair of pillars separated by a crowned simple shield with lions, castles, pomegranate and three centralized Fleurs-de-Lis
  • Lettering: ·HISPAN·ET IND·REX·Mo·2R·T·H· ; Translation: King of Spain and the Indies; Mexico City 2 Reales TH

    • * * * * *

      Although it is a 2 Reales (not the popular 8 Reales), I am interested in it because it appears to be in great condition and the best so far that I have seen of a Reales coin. A good strike!

      It is obvious that the coin has been cleaned, perhaps many years ago and probably years before it was placed in the protective coin flip.


      * * * * *

      Nope... this coin is not mine... yet.

      I hope to bid on it.

      The auction ends today at 8 PM PST.

      I love that coin bestie.I had a chance to buy a graded one for a steal a while back and didn’t. It still bothers me. Have a great day of hugs🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🥰🌹❤️

      The ending bid for this coin was $122.50. I did not get the coin, bestie! Might as well... I am not a collector anyway. That coin is now in the hands of someone who truly wants it and will appreciate it fully for its numismatic value!
      See you on World Coin Wednesday, bestie. Take care 🥰🌺🤙 and a ton of hugs 🤗🤗🤗🥰 !tip

      It is a very beautiful coin! I think it is interesting to note that the profile of Charles IV is very similar to some old Roman coins. Maybe it is on purpose...

      That is an interesting note, @ronaldoavelino! A portrait of him does look similar to the profile shown in the coin .

      Take care, my friend @ronaldoavelino 🥰🌺🤙 !tip

      LOL... yet... Good luck for the auction!

      Thanks. I didn't get the coin.... arrrgh.
      Take care 🥰🌺🤙!tip

      A great coin to have in the Stack as a conversation piece, as for me I can almost make any coin a conversation piece. I don't know the pedigree of my 1794 8 Reals but I love imagining it going through the hands of important people and even villains alike, or even found at the shore near an unknown Shipwreck.
      With love, always 🌺🤗💝🌹

      It is just so much fun, right... even if one loses the auction. Sometimes, though, it makes one feel that one does not have enough money to get whatever one wants.... arrrrgh!
      See you later on our Escudo posts! Luv you always too, sis @kerrislravenhill 🥰🌺🤙 and a million Hugs and Kisses 🤗💕💋! !tip

      For some I guess it's the THRILL of the hunt, for others it's the COMPETITION, I've even talked to someone who just bids for the entertainment or SPORT of it. There's more than just the Hunter Gatherer instincts to satisfy. Auctions can be FUN until you get a fake coin, been there. Buyer Beware.
      I purchased my bikes from a Police Auction years ago, worn out two of the three bikes so I may be back on the auction market for a higher end police recovered bike.

      Let us know tonight how the bidding went...
      A Colonial Mexico coin, now that interesting, that would be a good addition to your stack!!!
      Good luck @silversaver888 !!!🥰🤗😊

      I am nervous about it because I have a cap, of course. It is smaller than our half dollar coin, and less in silver content. The strike appears to be very good despite their coin presses during that time. It looks great, and the personal grading is "XF".
      I will sure to let you know, my friend @silvetop! Take care 🥰🌺🤙 !tip

      Please do....I hope you have a good day my friend!!!🤗
      Did you notice Silver price is down today, to bad I’m not heading to the LCS ...
      So much work to catch up !!🙃😳
      I’ll check for any updates later tonight!🥰🤗😊

      Minutes to go and it's blown past $90. Wrong one 0127.

      Sniped at $122.50. Not by me.

      Wow... I wonder if @silversaver888 was the winning bid???🤔

      No, I was not the winning bid... arrrgh!!! The price ended way above my cap of $100.00. It is apparent that the successful bidder was watching on the sidelines like you and @kerrislravenhill, and came in minutes came before the end. Bidder 634 was on auto bid from the very start. His/her cap was at $120.00 and must have not been around to add to counter the $122.50 bid.

      Might as well... it is providential. I am not a coin collector. I can get me 5 pieces with my $100.00!

      Thats a good way to look at this @silversaver888!🙄
      I have turned the corner on collecting, if I collect now it's older Silver and Gold coins that are just looked at as melt...
      Sovereigns, Swiss and French Franc's, Austrian Philharmonic's.....😀
      So much history with some of these coins, sold for just above melt....

      Another stacking day my friend, and those 5 pieces are still a bargain!
      Take care and enjoy this lovely Wednesday!!!😍😀🤗

      Good luck with a winning bid

      Awwww... thank you, my friend @davedickeyyall. I am crossing my fingers! The 8 Reales that I have is so beat-up and I paid so much for it. The last bid has not was 3 days ago... And many are watching in the sidelines. It is telling me that there are several serious bidders waiting for the last second to bid... and no one wants to drive the price up at this point. 10 hours to go! I seriously want this coin!
      THANK YOU for being first to comment on this article. I appreciate you always and your support of my blog. Have a beautiful day, my friend, take care 🥰🌺🤙 !tip
