Often mentioned but seldom seen. This 1/4 Real was previously said to have been minted for use in the Philippines. At that time it was thought to have been struck in Lima Peru. Further research needed and accomplished by Mr. Herman Blanton & Restrepo. No Date but struck in 1755; also no mintmark. See the similar 1/4 Reales for Mexico and other Spanish colonies. C-6; KM4. This coin is about XF+ at .86 gram and ~ 11 mm this coin meets the Spanish standard. This is an example of the milled Cuartillo with wide castle. In August of 1755 records show that 40,536 were struck in Santa Fe, Colombia.
Attribution of this 1/4 Real has been reassigned to Colombia based on ground breaking evidence presented in these articles:
