COLOMBIA. Gold 20 Pesos Essai (Pattern), 1873-MEDELLIN. Paris Mint. PCGS SPECIMEN-62. KM-Pn49; Restrepo-72. By A. Barre. A type that is missing from most collections on account of its <strong>EXCEPTIONAL RARITY</strong>, this tantalizing issue from the hand of Barre offers all the immense beauty and allure that one would associate from his French coinage designs of the period. Exceedingly crisp and brilliant, with a delightful golden-yellow hue throughout and dazzling eye appeal. Undoubtedly a specimen for the advanced collector of Latin American, pattern issues, or important gold coins from around the world.
