Some of you may know that I collect 1888 coins.
Why 1888? To make a long story short, it contains the number triple eights, which is my lucky number.
As I am not a collector of coins, I only purchase coins to be added to thus collection if the price is right (and only if I have the extra cash to spare). It is not a priority.
The latest coin was purchase sometime last year.
1888 Mexico Silver 8 Reales Cap & Rays Coin
The inscription on the reverse of the coin, Mo 1888 M.H., indicates the Mexico City Mint (MH) assayer.
The obverse of the coin is an eagle with the snake perch on top of a cactus.
The coin is 27.07grams of .903 fine silver.
I really want the 1888 Seated Liberty Quarter and 1888 Seated Liberty Half. After acquiring those, I think I will stop. But the halves are beyond my means... ARRGH! So I guess getting the quarter coin will suffice!
Thank you for stopping by to view this article.
I post an article daily, and I hope to see you again soon!
