Lima, Peru, cob 4 escudos, 1697/66H, encapsulated NGC MS 63, from the 1715 Fleet (stated inside slab), finest and only known specimen in NGC census, Tauler Plate Coin. S-L25; KM-unl (type 25); CT-92. Choice full cross-lions-castles with bold C.II (for Charles II) in legend, full but slightly off-center pillars-and-waves with nice full crown, somewhat weak on final digit of date (but the overdate still quite clear), traces of luster all over as exceptional in grade, in fact the only Charles II specimen in the NGC census. Curiously, the 9 and 7 of the date are clearly punched over 6's, meaning that the date on the original die was "666" (perhaps a die-sinker's dark joke). NGC #3354513-005. From the 1715 Fleet, and Plate Coin #71 on page 372 of Tauler's Oro Macuquino (2011).
