Santiago, Chile, gold bust 8 escudos, Ferdinand VI, 1751J, encrusted as found. CT-72; KM-3. 27.07 grams. Fully struck-up UNC (rare without central weakness) but left in its uncleaned state in order to preserve the fascinating barnacle "footprints" and "eggs" (like snakeskin) and red staining, unique and attractive. Recovered from: Luz, sunk in 1752 off Montevideo, Uruguay
