1803/1703-S PCGS VF 25 Spain 4 Reales Charles IV Seville Mint Overdate Silver Coin POP 1/0 (23011402C)

Regular price $450.00

  • Very Fine Spain silver 4 reales coin, a two year type, scarce denomination.
  • Approx. 32mm, 13.25g, dark toned.
  • Minted for King Charles IIII at Seville (mintmark S), mint director: CN.
  • Definite overdate variety 1803/1703, apparently unpublished, but not acknowledged on the label by PCGS. NGC has graded a 1803/1795 variety. Interesting in that 1803 was the first year of issue for Seville. It is possible that an obverse die was obtained from another mint (such as Madrid, which did not produce 4 reales in 1803) with the date partially punched "17", re-engraved with an "8" & completed with the current date "03" and then paired with an existing Seville reverse die.
  • Certified by PCGS to VF 25, Population Census: This coin, none higher.
