Mexico City, Mexico, cob 4 reales Royal (galano), 1713J, unique, NGC XF details / plugged, finest and only example in NGC census. S-M22; KM-unl; Cal-unl. 13.47 grams. In stark contrast to the regular production issues, this Royal is perfectly evenly struck on a broad flan with no doubling or weakness anywhere, beautifully toned and lacking any significant marks or wear (relatively high grade) except for an expertly repaired hole at the bottom (medal-aligned axis), as is customary for Royals. This is the final date of a generally heavy-handed style (those of 1714 and especially 1715 onward having very sharp and crisp details instead), giving it a charmingly old and rustic look that appeals particularly to cob collectors, although this unique piece would certainly be a highlight in any collection of Mexican rarities or general world-coin trophies. NGC #2789252-017. Pedigreed to the Isaac Rudman Numismatic Cabinet.
