COMMENTS
This Spanish Silver Dollar was struck at the Lima Mint, Peru, in 1786 and features the portrait of the Spanish King, Charles III. Highly lustrous, the coin has original mint bloom on the reverse. Historians have a fascinating insight into the extensive practice of counter stamping Spanish Silver Dollars in the 18th century with this piece. The counter stamp ‘DC‘ on the obverse in a plain rectangular indent is unpublished. There is some suggestion that it may have been used in the Danish Colonies of India. (Denmark held colonial possessions in India for more than two centuries.)
