Madrid, Spain, cob 8 escudos, Philip IV, 1642B, retrograde 4 in date, no stops in obverse legend, rare, NGC MS 65, finest and only example in NGC census. Cal-1910. 27.01 grams. Exceptional grade for a cob (none graded higher for any date or mint for this type), with choice full inner details and crown as well as some legend (including date, which shows a clearly retrograde 4, per Tauler #18a) on a broad, round flan that extends past the outer border in places, attractively lustrous, with only a hint of doubling on the cross side, very bold and lovely all over, and decidedly rare with a catalog value of 20,000 Euros. NGC #4916846-001.
