Mexico San Luis Potosi 1/4 Real  1867
Mexico San Luis Potosi 1/4 Real 1867

From other requests you have posted, Mel, you know that collecting the old coins of Mexico can be great fun and great frustration. There are so many types, and it is very difficult to find the old ones in good shape. Most are worn to a frazzle. When you find a nice-looking specimen, gobble it up!

This coin comes from the Mexican state of San Luis Potosi, near the center of the country. The coin in our picture comes from Ponterio and Associates (now Stack's Bowers) where it sold at auction for $110 US dollars back in 2010. That was a bargain price, in my view, for such a nice looking coin.

Here are CoinQuest's estimates of catalog value

worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $50
well preserved: $250

Always consult our Important Terminology page for a short set of instructions about how to interpret these catalog values.

Coin: 14931 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
