Horacio Morero, President of the Instituto Uruguayo de Numismática, submitted this summary of the contents of the latest issue of the club's publication El Sitio. Thanks!
“El Sitio” N° 14 contains, in its 34 pages, three numismatic articles and the chronicle of the New Year celebrations.
The cover of “El Sitio” N° 14 shows the pictures of the 4 centesimos gold pattern minted in Paris in 1869. The set of three gold patterns (4, 2 and 1 centesimos) was auctioned by Heritage Auctions for $ 49,350 in January 5th, 2015.
The three published articles are the following:
1) Conchillas and its tokens: the Walker ranch and the Evans grocery, by Miguel Garepe Sallé. This is a nice story of these two issuers of tokens in the Conchillas city, in the Colonia Department.
2) Royal Proclamation medals of Fernando VII: initial fidelity to the Spanish monarch in the Virreinato del Río de la Plata, by Santiago Blanco.
3) Identifying shearing tokens (fourth part), by Horacio Morero. This article refers to five Ranchs: “Santa María” and “La Esperanza” in Durazno Department; “La Pradera” and “San Juan” in the Cerro Largo Department and “El Coronilla” in the Flores Department.
