Segovia, Spain, gold 1 escudo, Charles-Joanna, assayer oD to right, mintmark aqueduct to left of shield, second mintmark in top-left tressure-dimple on reverse, NGC AU 50. Cal-187. 3.28 grams. Scarce mint, the all-important mintmark and assayer both bold but slightly doubled, good full shield and cross, parts of legend, nice toning here and there. The overall style and presence of a second mintmark are more reminiscent of the Philip II type (Calico 782), but parts of IOHANA are clear in the obverse legend. Pellicer i Bru lists an assayer Diego Espinar for 1535 and an assayer Diego Munoz for ca. 1557-8; we suspect the oD on this coin is for the latter, struck in the names of Charles and Joanna but during the reign of Philip II. NGC #6284506-002. Pedigreed to the Kempen Treasure hoard (stated on label).
