Description Caracas 1/4 real 1821, under Gran Colombia, KM-C31, AU58 NGC. First year of the silver quartillas produced in this mint. It is estimated that fewer than 20 pieces of this first-year issue survive, and this is undoubtedly one of the finer examples extant. Slightly dappled toning, varies from lead-gray to a light silver-gray, with a nice strike for the issue. Exceedingly rare. Realized $16,450.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
