PLANTERS BANK, NEW ORLEANS COUNTERSTAMP. Struck on quartered section of a Mexico 8 Reals. 5.8 grams. Details...

An exceptionally nice specimen of this very rare issue. The counterstamps on both sides are uniformly bold and are, indeed, stronger than the B&M 2002 Steinberg specimen which sold for $3220.00. This rare piece was missing from the John J. Ford collection.

The Charles Litman Collection, PCAC sale #72, December 6, 2003, lot 66.
Probably Ex. Donald Miller Collection.
