Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 escudos, 1711 J, ornate-tressure cross, NGC UNC details / saltwater damage, ex-1715 Fleet, ex-Ullian. S-M30; KM-57.1; Cal-2207. 26.89 grams. Lightly toned all over with slight matte appearance due to sand-washing (typical for this date), full and bold oXMJ and denomination VIII flanking full shield with tiny flat spot near top only, full cross with flatness and slight doubling at bottom, interesting sub-type of 1711-12 only with "ears" for tressures in cross angles (what NGC calls "bar-end cross"), much legend including clear bottom half of date, good pedigree. NGC #5965185-003 (1715 Fleet Shipwreck Label). From the 1715 Fleet, with Lou Ullian certificate (Real Eight Co.) and Phil Flemming photo-certificate from 2010, pedigreed to the Fernandina collection (stated on label) and to the Cayon auction of July 2016, with original lot-tag 1203.
