KM-12 variety, struck at the Nueva Guatemala mint.
The classic Central American Republic issue with the charming sun over mountains on the obverse, and a local Ceiba (pronounced “SAY-ba”) Tree on the reverse.
And this well pedigreed example is among the finest known of this type, sharply struck, all original, lustrous with lovely golden orange color and superb eye-appeal.
Ex American Numismatic Rarities April 2005 sale of the Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection, lot #3039; earlier John H. Clapp Collection.
This coin is from the CRO archives and is not currently available for sale.
