    Nice I like the design. Maybe VG grade?

    I have a much later dated 25 centavos that is more grungy. I like both the eagles w/ snake in beak reverses. Polish_20200921_173317550.jpg

    Looks kind of like the effect you get when the die is wearing out, commonly called Die Deterioration Doubling.

    Neat looking coin. No comment on the variety- that's not my thing. Just in general, I think it's a handsome circulated example, for the grade.

    Nice coin.

    Casa de Moneda de México in San Luis Potosí is the oldest mint in America. Established in 1535.
