So this pillar dollar was up for auction yesterday at an online auction house here in Spain. The coin was beautiful, it had the 6 leaf rosette on the reverse, beautiful patina and a point between the two globes and the crown on the obverse, which I haven't seen before. A friend told me that there were about 100 of these known to exist, in the end it went for 420 euros. I'm regretting that I didn't pull the trigger on it. Someday it (or one like it) will be mine...

Very nice coin. I have learned the hard way that when you pass on something you really like, you'll regret it later.

When you asked about the 6-petal rosette the other day, I did a quick search and there were at least a dozen examples in auction archives...

Always be wary of rarity estimates on obscure varieties that perhaps not enough people care enough about to look for!

PS - this really should be combined into your other thread about this...

@realeswatcher:
Could you link me your search results, because doing an ordinary google search I found next to nothing. How do I combine this with the other thread? Should I just link this one there?
