  1. Chris. Thanks for your comentary. The coin 1832 was returned by NGC without slab. The owner of coin, bought a slab of PBCC and put into the lable with coin. The acrilic slab is not of NGC, only the lable. Regards. Xavier Alban.
  2. Ecuadorian Trial Coin Dated 1832 Many know that when Ecuador's mint began to operate, it was given the task of revaluing or demonetizing base metal coins, most of them denominated in Reales and minted in Popayan, Colombia. It is common knowledge that in Quito the clandestine manufacture of counterfeit coins of base metal or low silver content was widespread in the early days of the republic. This clandestine manufacture of spurious coins proliferated between 1828 and 1831; this being the reason one of the first tasks of the Quito mint was to identify the coins of 1 real of Pop

  4. 2 Reales 1833 is different design of coins 1834 and 1835. You can see all differences comparing it with the pic below Moreover, coins 1833 and 1834 have a period at the end word "CONSTITUCION". The coin of 1835 has not a period at the end this word. 1834/5 coin has not a DOT in this word. It is impossible that the coin be a 2 reales 1834/3 or 1834/4.... The coin has not period at end word "CONSTITUCION"
  5. The mystery of the 2 REALES 1834/5 GJ What should be borne in mind is that all the coins with overdates have one thing in common, which is that the overstruck date is normally over a date earlier than that of the overstriking. However this rule has an exception. Dale Seppa’s compendium ECUADORIAN COINS– An Annotated checklist – Edition 2016 on page 18 reports the existence of a 2 Reales coin with overstruck date 1834/5 GJ, a coin whose overstriking is unusual in that the overstriking is on a future date compared to the overstriking rather than an earlier date as is normal.
  6. Ecuadorian Overdate Coins. Whilst Ecuadorian numismatic history is short, due to its having begun its own coinage only in 1/833, it does have an extraordinary variety of specimens that makes it very rich and interesting for collectors. It is common to find within a s ingle year some very apparent differences which make each coin individual, varieties such as subtle changes in the design of the shield, errors in the legend such as inverted or altered letters, crude minting, overstrikes, minting errors etc.
