    The original ones there was 3 Brass trials, the picture is of an XM #16 and no one knows how many brass trials made of that one. Also seen one Brass XM #16 at auction recently like this one that seem to be plated as weight was more than the silver weight and brass is lighter than silver. And yes the real ones the Brass Trial, Lead Trial, and unfinished edge would be the rarest with 3 of each made.

    XM #16 Brass Trial recently sold at Katz Auction but weight seemed too high for brass. Hopefully was not brass plated as went for over 700 euro's

    I haven't seen the other ones you mention either. I guess the brass ones are rarest eitherway since I have seen the least. The ones you say only 3 were made those probably could fetch lots of money.

    Yes any Trial off Metal strike Brass, Copper or Lead should sell at good price at Auction or through private sale. The 1965 Cuba Souvenir Peso very popular coin and very collectable. If Graded by NGC or PCGS will bring even higher price.

    If you ever want more info on the original 1965 Cuba Souvenirs you can e-mail me at jacosta@pennclubny.org I know almost all about that coin still discover new things about them once in a while but still researching. The XM #16 I have asked and researched to all ends but come up empty very mysterious coin. 1st time in Auction that I can trace was in 1971 so it was made soon after the original one. Who ever made it did not want it to be an exact copy and did few things different so they would know which was which. The skill of the creator of the XM #16 was equal to that of the original and might have even been same artist. Rumors say they were made in Puerto Rico or Dominican Republic but if I had to bet on it I would say they were made in Europe. Quality too good and most of the XM #16 come out of Europe. The ones in the U.S.A. all came from Europe as well. One day I will figure out the whole story and write the article. Until then my research continues. Jose Acosta

    I know someone who owns the 1965 Cuba Souvenir XM #16 Brass Lettered Edge Weight is 26 Grams. That seems right as silver one is about 29.8 Grams.
