Colombia - Republic. 8 Reales, 1835/4-BA-RS (Bogota). WR-9; Eliz-21; KM-89. 26.98 grams. Fasces type. Fasces bound with bow and arrow, flanking cornucopiae. Reverse: Wreath with banner above; value and mintmarks within. Good even strike, and only lightly handled. Satiny to smooth fields, the obverse retaining its fine cartwheel luster. Lovely old deep toning, comprised of smokey deep golds to copper, with bold areas of violet and blue to green. NGC graded MS-62.
