Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 escudos, (1714)J, "GRAT" variety, from the 1715 Fleet. S-M30; KM-57.2; CT-107. 26.92 grams. Choice full shield with telltale errors (fleurs of Burgundy underneath the fesse of Austria on the left inside the shield, denomination VIII over IIIV), full but slightly off-center cross, no peripheries (which would show GRAT where the date normally is and the date above the cross instead) but what is visible is Mint State with faint sediment. From the 1715 Fleet.
