Lima, Peru, cob 1 escudo, 1707/5H, rare, from the 1715 Fleet, Tauler Plate Coin. S-L25a; KM-unl (35 for type). 3.37 grams. Choice full castle with bold mintmark, assayer and date with clear 7/5 (the "smoking gun" that all but proves the date 1706 does not exist, despite its unsupported listing in CT, KM and Tauler), slightly off-center full cross, lustrous UNC with minor nicks here and there from former mounting. From the 1715 Fleet, with Fisher photo-certificate #PC6-31029, and Plate Coin #120a in Oro Macuquino (2011), by Tauler, also pedigreed to the Cayon auction of December 2005 (lot #4103).
