Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 escudos, 1714 J, Royal-die obverse, extremely rare, NGC MS 62, ex-1715 Fleet. S-M30; KM-unl (57.2 for type); Cal-unl (Type 296). 26.90 grams. Bright butter-yellow color, choice full shield and cross, the former very crisply detailed and with small ornamental florets in the spaces as struck from a Royal die (Tauler #395a), and with bold date to boot, an extremely rare specialty piece for the advanced gold-cob collector, with probably no more than two or three known of this variety (not listed in the NGC census), effectively an opportunity to own an 8 escudos Royal at a price closer to that of a regular-issue coin. NGC #5965257-001 (1715 Fleet Shipwreck Label). From the 1715 Fleet, with certificates, and pedigreed to the Ponterio auction of April 2000, with original lot-tag 800.
