Bogota, Colombia, cob 1 escudo, no assayer (Arce), posthumous Charles II, from the 1715 Fleet, ex-Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign. Restrepo-M64.16; S-B24; KM-13. 3.40 grams. Lustrous Mint State with choice full shield, full but off-center cross. During the 2016 holiday season this coin was famously (and anonymously) placed in a "red kettle" for the Salvation Army (which will receive 100% of the hammer price now), as reported in USA Today and other news outlets at the time. From the 1715 Fleet, with letter from Salvation Army Corps Officer Lt. Jonathan Needham.
