Lima, Peru, gold cob 8 escudos, 1713/2 M, legend HISPANIAR, ex-1715 Fleet, mounted cross-side out in fancy (large) 18K gold bezel with one emerald and thirteen diamonds. S-L28; KM-unl; Cal-2121; Tauler-244c. 45.03 grams total. Choice, exceptionally broad-flan UNC with a gorgeous full and well-centered cross-lions-castles, full but very slightly doubled pillars-and-waves with fairly clear overdate (the 3 also visible in legend), in an elaborate mounting that features a rectangular, high-grade Muzo emerald (approx. 1.8 carats) at top and 0.5 carats of small, well-matched diamonds gracing the prongs and (fixed) bail, quite a jewel for both the coin and the workmanship. From the 1715 Fleet, with photo-certificates (both before and after mounting).
