Mexico City, Mexico, cob 8 reales Royal (galano), 1613 F, extremely rare, NGC VF details / mount removed, plated, ex-Rudman. S-M17; KM-R44.3; Cal-unl (Type 160). 26.60 grams. Impressively broad flan (typical of early Royals), with 100% full and evenly struck details, faint traces of gilding, attractively contrasting toning in crevices. The NGC capsule makes it impossible to see the stated mount removal, but what is more important is that this coin was apparently never holed (even though it would have been a great candidate, since the two sides are in perfect coin alignment), which makes it very rare for any Royal. Also, while Philip III Royals are already rare as a type, to our knowledge this may be the only clean-date 1613 in existence, as the only other example (cited in Lazaro and Calico) is 1613/2. That overdate coin is rated by Lazaro as RU (unique), and it shares the same reverse die as the present clean-date example. An important coin for the consummate collector of Mexican Royals! NGC #2789248-008. Pedigreed to the Isaac Rudman Numismatic Cabinet.
