Bogota, Colombia, 4 escudos, 1826JF, encapsulated NGC F-15, rare. Sedwick-5. Restrepo-164. KM-86. Somewhat weak strike with wear and marks, but an elusive one-year type that is highly sought by type-collectors. Per Sedwick: "not only a one-year type but also the only 4 escudos of Colombia as a nation, and was probably of low mintage. Almost never is the piece seen in any but low grade." While hardly comparable in quality, it is interesting to note that the top-end Eliasberg specimen in MS-64 sold for $42,550. Dr. Frank Sedwick collection of Colombian Republic gold coins
