Mint Mark B
Description Joao V gold 4000 Reis 1722-B, KM106, Russo-68, MS64 NGC. An amazing survivor from the Bahia Mint, this example displays radiant obverse luster with impressive prooflike reflectivity on the reverse. The strike is also nearly full and attractively centered, an attribute often lacking on the Bahia type. Truly a near-Gem with a single mark in the lower left quadrant of the reverse cross that prevents the full Gem designation. Ex: ?Colonel? E.H.R. Green; Green Estate? Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson. Realized $4,406.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
