Peso 1861

Stack's Auction
This coin is a modern restrike. I believe the story is that the original dies were not destroyed after the initial production and thus these coins continued to be struck privately up into the 1960's.

I resubmitted the coin to NGC and they refunded me the auction price and returned the coin back to me; minus the slab of course.
