Comments

There is a persistent error in the K&M Catalogs, in which the KM#181 is assigned to two different coins, and it hasn't been edited since it appeared. The other coin that uses the same KM#181 - Zacatecas
This one is at times referred as KM#165 on the countermarked coins, so it is believed that its correct catalog number is 165.
