Lima, Peru, cob 8 escudos, 1704H, PCGS AU58, ex-1715 Fleet (designated on label). S-L25a; KM-38.1; CT-14. 26.96 grams. Choice full cross-lions-castles and pillars-and-waves with full crown as top, light weakness or wear on high points, some luster, very light toning in crevices. From the 1715 Fleet, with photo-certificate. PCGS #36269985.

Note: An observant bidder noticed that the cross side of this 1704 is identical to the highly publicized cross side of a 1703 specimen found on the Whydah shipwreck of 1717, from which we feature two 8 reales in this auction (lots 568 and 569).
