Owner Comments:

The principal royalist forces remaining in the former Spanish Viceroyalty of Peru were defeated in 1824, with the final battles concluding in Upper Peru in 1825, marking the end of Spanish rule in South America.

This example is a scarce variety, showing only one assayer's initial instead of the typical two initials. Raw specimen from Daniel Frank Sedwick's Treasure Auction 12, October 2012, Lot# 1292. KM-84, CT-615, 26.9 grams. Good VF+ with hint of luster and toning, minor natural flaw near rim at top of reverse, elusive issue that catalogs for many times the normal variety for this year.
