    Saw a dealer that had this coin for three years but it's not my field of interest. Curiosity got the better of me. It looks like it isn't too common. Definitely low grade and holed. Don't think I got it as a bargain but it doesn't seem common either.



    The counterstamp is still visible. I don't know what is the tell sign of a Lima real but I guess that's what the host coin is.

    Where can I read more about this coin? Found a link here that I thought is interesting
