Lima, Peru, cob 8 escudos, 1733N, possibly from the 1733 Fleet, Tauler Plate Coin. S-L29; KM-38.2; CT-48. 27.00 grams. Small, thick and round flan with full pillars-and-waves and cross-lions-castles, two dates (the 733 in the legend impressively full), bright lemon-yellow color, AU with luster. Our previous listings for this piece note it once had a Sedwick certificate stating "This coin has the appearance of a sea-salvage specimen, and though I cannot confirm its origin, the 1733 fleet in the Florida Keys is a logical possibility as a source." Plate Coin #300 in Oro Macuquino, by Rafael Tauler Fesser (2011) and pedigreed to the Numismatica Ars Classica auction of November, 2000 (lot #2019), and to our Auction #12 (lot #40), and to our Auction #14 (lot #21).
