Durango. Revolutionary "Muera Huerta" Peso 1914 AU55 NGC, Durango mint, KM621. An issue of great historical weight loaded with enticing visual contrasts: the residual engraver's guide around the obverse legends compared to the severely deteriorated state of the reverse die, the wear on the cap compared to the razor-sharpness of the remaining devices, and a remarkable air of quality from a notorious low point in the quality of Mexican coinage. The nearly shattered condition of the reverse die--riddled with large cracks and cuds--makes the incredible level of execution all the more astonishing and worthy of collector attention.
