Lima, Peru, cob 8 escudos, 1711M, from the 1715 Fleet, encapsulated NGC MS 62. S-L28; KM-38.2; CT-22. Superb strike, with bold full details all over (very three-dimensional) and no wear whatsoever, even somewhat lustrous, certainly among the top specimens we have ever seen (rather conservatively graded by NGC in our opinion, but still among the top 5 in their census), a common date but popular among gamblers for the prominent 7-11 manifestation, this one a variety with four dots above the denomination (Tauler #237). From the 1715 Fleet, as stated inside the slab.
