Lima, Peru, cob 8 escudos, 1702H, very rare, from the 1715 Fleet. S-L25a; KM-38.1; CT-12. 26.9 grams. Very bold full pillars-and-waves and crown, full but slightly doubled cross, much bold legend, XF+ with lots of reddish sediment on fields. This date is missing in the State of Florida collection, and while we can trace only 3 examples, we know of at least one other. Two legend variants exist for this date, one with HISPA and the other with HISPAN, of which the present specimen is the latter (Tauler #217). From the 1715 Fleet, with Sedwick certificate from 2002.
