Lima, Peru, cob 8 escudos, 1733N, possibly from the 1733 Fleet (rare provenance), Tauler Plate Coin #300. S-L29; KM-38.2; CT-48. 26.99 grams. Small, thick and round flan with full pillars-and-waves and cross-lions-castles, 2 dates (the 733 in the legend impressively full), bright lemon-yellow color, XF or so for wear. Plate Coin in Tauler, and pedigreed to the Numismatica Ars Classica auction of November, 2000, lot #2019, and to our Auction #12 (with original lot-tag #40), with Sedwick certificate from 2001 that says "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."
