Bogota, Colombia, cob 2 escudos, 1633, assayer A below mintmark NR to left, NGC MS 63, ex-"Mesuno hoard" (ca. 1636, designated on label), Restrepo Plate Coin (designated on label), ex-Santa Fe collection, finest known in NGC census. Restrepo-M50.11 (this coin); S-B20; KM-4.1; CT-153. 6.71 grams. This coin has so much going for it: struck on an exceptionally broad flan with full inner details (the cross double-struck) and much legend including full date, full NRA and denomination II, contrasting encrustation, and heavily pedigreed to a wreck, a reference and a collection, plus tops in the NGC census--wow! NGC #4690080-002. From the "Mesuno hoard" (ca. 1636) and pedigreed to the Santa Fe collection (our auction #11, lot #22), also plated in Restrepo's Coins of Colombia (page 85).
