Mexico City, Mexico, cob 2 escudos, (1711-13)J, from the 1715 Fleet, encapsulated NGC MS 64, finest known in NGC census. S-M30; KM-53.1. 6.7 grams. While the 1714 specimens typically come nice and do reach as high as MS 66, the earlier designs almost never get above MS 62, so it is easy to see why this specimen is the finest known, with incredible luster and sharpness, also well centered and with full shield and cross (the former slightly doubled) and bold assayer J, and more round than most but regrettably with the entire date off the planchet. From the 1715 Fleet, with Fisher tag #30278.
