PETRUS I (or II) D G CONST IMP ET PERP BRAS DEF

It is almost impossible to find well preserved specimens of these old copper coins. Value skyrockets as condition improves. Here are some typical catalog values that apply to all dates.

20 REIS
worn: $4 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $20
well preserved: $50

37 1/2 REIS
worn: $15 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $100
well preserved: $300

40 REIS
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $20
well preserved: $50

80 REIS
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $20
well preserved: $50

Eye appeal makes a big difference on these coins. Coins with tainted appeal will be worth less.
