Mexico, cob 8 escudos, 1711J, with rare style of cross for date, from the 1715 Fleet. S-M30; KM-57.1; CT-103. 26.7 grams. Even though this coin is lightly sandwashed and therefore not high grade (net XF), it is the quality and variety of strike that propel it to a potentially high level, as the date and oXMJ and shield and cross are all full, and the cross is the triple-end type that typifies the lower denominations and the 1713s more so than the 1711 8E, and in fact this variety is missing in Calico's La Onza book and may be the first we have ever handled, and also it is a nice color all over, with just a small edge-split.
