Bogota, Colombia, cob 8 escudos, 1750/49S, assayer S above denomination 8 to left, mintmark F-S to right, broad flan, rare, NGC AU 50, finest and only example in NGC census. Restrepo-M98.4 var; S-B27a; Cal-801; KM-unl (26 for type). 26.94 grams. Colombian cob 8E and 4E (which did not begin until very late under Philip V) seem to come either small or large, the latter like the present coin so large as to encompass the whole design (much like a Royal or galano), the cross side on this specimen being exceptionally full and bold with clear overdate (the shield side doubled but also full), with very light toning in crevices, light gouge next to one arm of cross. NGC #4756094-001.
