Lima, Peru, cob 8 escudos, 1702H, very rare, Calicó Plate Coin. S-L25a, KM-38.1, CT-12. 26.9 grams. A key rarity (4 known, missing in the State of Florida collection), one of only 2 found by the Real Eight Co. on the 1715 Fleet (this one among some 1800 cobs stacked up in a disintegrated wooden chest found on Memorial Day of 1964 by Bob Johnson about 150 yards from the ballast pile of the Colored Beach wreck site), also a very photogenic coin (Plate Coin #218 in Calicó's La Onza reference) on a broad and perfectly round planchet with 100% full legends and inner details, clear date despite very minor doubling on pillars only, lustrous AU. One of the major highlights of this sale. From the Colored Beach site of the 1715 Fleet, with Real Eight Co. certificate.
