Mexico Modern Coins with Difficult Date 1900 to 1999
This happens quite often here at CoinQuest. People write in with an old Mexican coin and ask what it is worth. But check the date. If it looks like, for example, 1887, it is really 1987, not 1887. The strike and character formation on many modern Mexican coins are not good. It is easy to mis-read the date.
Coin: 3244 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
