Lima, Peru, cob 8 escudos, 1715M, very rare. S-L28; KM-38.2; CT-27. 26.9 grams. Even though the 1715 is unknown from the 1715 Fleet, it is popular for showing the same date, and in fact it is even rarer than the 1714 (previous lot). This specimen is a nice but slightly shiny XF+ with 2 dates, full pillars-and-waves and cross-lions-castles and much legend on a broad flan, with HISPANIA at end per Tauler #248. Probably only 6-7 are known, this being the first we have ever offered at auction. With ANACS photo-certificate.
