Lima, Peru, cob 8 escudos, 1701H, posthumous Charles II, extremely rare, PCGS MS63, ex-Pullin, ex-1715 Fleet (both designated on label). S-L25; KM-26.2. 26.94 grams. Thick and smallish flan with full and well-centered pillars-and-waves with nearly full crown above, full cross-lions-castles (off-center), muted luster under light toning, king's name off the flan but inferred from positioning, one of only two specimens known of this date for Charles II, and the only one without overdate 1/0 (and of course the finest and only known specimen in either PCGS or NGC censuses). From the 1715 Fleet, with photo-certificate, pedigreed to the John Pullin collection. PCGS #36269986.
