Lima, Peru, cob 8 escudos, 1749R. S-L30a; KM-unl (47 for type); CT-14. 27.1 grams. This fascinating coin, which appears to be unlisted in Tauler, bears traces of L-R flanking and 749 date below the cross, plus a bold 74 in the legend on the pillars side, making it one of the few Lima 8E to bear THREE dates! The pillars are full but slightly doubled, and the bold cross-lions-castles is slightly off-center, but everything is attractively contrasted by red-toned fields, no worse than XF for actual wear.
