Contemporary counterfeit struck in ungilded platinum of a Popayan, Colombia, bust 2 escudos, Charles IV, 1805SF, rare. Restrepo-90.23. 6.78 grams. Three known, according to Restrepo, so obviously quite rare and somewhat accepted by Colombian collectors as having numismatic value (although the date/assayer/mint combination is unknown in genuine issues), this example with weak center on reverse but otherwise well struck and toned around details, XF overall.
