Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 escudos Royal (galano), 1711 J, NGC UNC details / damaged, ex-1715 Fleet, ex-Rudman. S-M30; KM-R57.1; Cal-2192. 26.80 grams. Full and sharp details all over despite damage from its time on the reef that rendered the coin somewhat oblong in shape (and thereby kept it from being recognized as a Royal early on), with much luster and traces of toning and no evidence of actual circulation wear. The date 1711 is the first and most numerous of the "Crosslet Cross" type (1711-13) of Mexican 8E Royals, with a current population of ten known examples for this date, only three of which (including this one) were known prior to the "tricentennial" bonanza in 2015 (300th Anniversary Find). A great opportunity for the cob collector who always wanted a chance to get an 8 escudos Royal at this starting level. NGC #6269469-001 (1715 Fleet Shipwreck Label). From the 1715 Fleet and pedigreed to the Isaac Rudman Numismatic Cabinet
