THE FINEST KNOWN 1776 SPAIN " RS-CF" 4 REALES G. AND THE ONLY ONE WE HAVE EVER HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO VIEW!!THE 1776 SAYING AT THE TIME: "THE HEAD OF A FOOL ON THE NECK OF AN ASS". GEORGE III KING OF GREAT BRITAIN COUNTER-STAMPED ONTO THE NECK OF CAROLUS III KING OF SPAIN. ENGLAND RAN SHORT OF SILVER SPECIE FOR COMMERCE DURING 1797-99 AND INSTITUTED EMERGENCY CURRENCY LAWS GIVING THE CROWNS MINT APPROVAL TO COUNTER-STAMP FOREIGN COINS.

SPEAKING OF SCARCITY, THIS 1776 "RS-CF" PIECE IS THE ONLY ONE GRADED IN ANY GRADE THAT WE ARE AWARE OF. Much MoreTo Come, Thank You.
