Lima, Peru, cob 8 escudos, 1703H, HISPAN variety, rare, NGC MS 63, finest known in NGC census, ex-1715 Fleet (designated on special label), ex-Pullin. S-L25a; KM-38.1; Cal-2110. 27.01 grams. Perfectly centered on a very broad flan with choice full central details (pillars-and-waves and cross-lions-castles) and full legends (minor doubling here and there), lightly red-toned all over, fully deserving of its rank atop just four entries in the NGC census. Curiously, the Lima 8E of 1703 come in four varieties in terms of how the cross-side legends end (ISPA, HISPA, HISPAN and HISPANIA) and this particular variety with HISPAN (Tauler #219a) is the only one missing in Calico's La Onza (2004). NGC #5935106-001. From the 1715 Fleet, pedigreed to the John Pullin collection.
