Garden City, NY, USALive Auction
Description: Guatemala 1893-RG Silver Peso. NGC AU Details, Excessive Surface Hairlines. Both the obverse and reverse exhibit noticeable hairlines from a past cleaning, however there is still a degree of underlying surface life evident. The rarity of this EXTREMELY IMPORTANT issue is well established. Of the paltry 1119 pieces minted, it is estimated that ONLY 6-12 EXAMPLES HAVE MANAGED TO SURVIVE. We can find auction records for only three such specimens that have reached the market in the last 15+ years (this coin and two others), and one of the others was also impaired to some extent. Est. $1700.
