Philipines 1 Quarto 1830 - retrograde lettering
« on: March 23, 2019, 06:00:26 PM »
Hello! Can any comment on whether retrograde lettering on this coin is more or less common than the regularly-styled letters? I've attached a scan and brightened scan to make the letters more readable. Thanks for the opinions!
