Bogota, Colombia, cob 2 escudos, Charles II and Philip V, no assayer (Arce), very rare type with CAROLVS on obverse and PHILIPPVS on reverse (1702), NGC MS 62, ex-1715 Fleet (designated on special label). Restrepo-M79.1; S-B24; KM-unl (14.2 for type); Cal-1934. 6.70 grams. Full but crude shield with bold (CAR)OLV(S) in legend, good full cross with clear ordinal V between x-shaped ornaments in legend, bottoms of digits of 1702(?) date barely visible (not 100% certain but confirmed by Restrepo reference, which says "two known" for this rare variety, although Calico lists a 1701 as well), encrustation in crevices, some weak strike but lustrous and high grade nonetheless. NGC #5940499-002. From the 1715 Fleet, with original Cobb Coin Co. (Fisher) tags and photo-certificate #NCB3679MO.
