Here's a great example of a purchasing mistake due to lack of proper research. The seller described this as a 1/2 Quarto from Gibraltar during 1700's. Great! I've never heard of any Gibraltar coins prior to 1802, this is a great find for a Gibraltar collector I told myself. Two months later, after enlisting the help of Bob Reis (anythinganywhere.com), I find out that this coin is a pretty good and historical find of Venezuela - IF it has a visible date and is in decent condition. Date is off the flan and the flan is the more common small type (22 - 27mm) . And yes, that's a Lion on the reverse [sides reversed in photo]. GUYANA, Fernando VII, struck in the Guiana Mint.
