Description: Bolivia Gold 1868PTS FE Onza. NGC XF Details, Plugged-Repaired-Cleaned. A hole was very skillfully plugged at 12:00, and the planchet is a bit out of round at the upper left obverse. Despite its condition problems, the appearance remains respectable, and the rarity of this coin cannot be disputed. This classic gold rarity is of the utmost importance not only as a one year of type coin, but also due to the fact that this Onza denomination was only produced for a single year. In fact, it can be argued that this Bolivian Onza type/denomination is RARER THAN ANY OTHER NORTH AMERICAN TYPE OR DENOMINATION. Only a 6-7 such pieces are confirmed known. The Mortimer Hammel specimen (NGC MS61) last sold in May 2008 for $60,000 plus the buyer's fee. The specimen offered here last sold at auction for $7637.50 in January 2016. All of the other auction records of which we are aware are a good 25+ years ago! Here is your chance to own a major gold rarity of the highest order. Seize the day or forever regret the opportunity that slipped away. Est. $8250.
