Set Description
Gold 25 Pesetas with overdates ("sobrefechas") for 1882/1 and 1883/2 are listed in each of the two complete Spanish coin reference guides, Xavier Calicó’s “Numismática Española 1474 a 2001” (p. 826) and Adolfo, Clemente y Juan Cayón’s “Las Monedas Españolas del Tremis al Euro” (vol. 2, p. 1336).

These two overdates are not listed in the major international reference guides, notably Krause-Mishler and Schlumberger, which tend to be more restrictive in their recognition of varieties.

I believe a complete collection of Spanish gold peseta coins will include these two significant overdates.

NGC has certified three examples of 1883/2 overdate: this example graded MS-65 (Certificate #2783734-002) and an example graded MS-64 (Certificate #3768743-001), both graded in 2013; and a third example graded MS-64 (Certificate #4916858-005) in 2021.

PCGS has not yet certified any examples.

This coin, under magnification, shows the entire date has been repunched.

This is my favorite Alfonsina. There is not likely to be a finer example in the world.

PCGS has certified two examples of 1882/1 overdate, this one graded MS-63+ (Certification #27592825), and one graded MS-63 (Certification #10873423).

PCGS recognizes the 1882/1 overdate as a separate variety of "1882-MS M 25 Pta" in its Population Report (PCGS No. 145180: "1882/1-MS M 25 Pta").

NGC has not yet certified any examples of the 1882/1 overdate.
