Seville, Spain, cob 2 escudos, 1619G, ex-Atocha (1622). CT-48; KM-20. 6.79 grams. One of the rarest and most desirable shipwreck coins to hope for is a gold cob from the Atocha, as very few were found, and the present specimen is easily one of the best of them! In addition to a full cross and shield in Mint State grade (the cross-side surface a bit grainy from rusty die), with hints of luster, faint orange toning and bits of coral in crevices, this piece has a 100% full 1619 date and mintmark-assayer S-G, not to mention its original certification and pedigree. From the Atocha (1622), with original Fisher tag and photo-certificate #85A-GC10 / TSI 3169 plus new tag #85A-3169-1 and updated database printout, pedigreed to the collection of an original Atocha "Golden Crew" member, who received it in division.
