Philip IV gold Cob 8 Escudos ND (1634-1659) MS64 NGC, Seville mint, KM59.2, Cal-Type 406, Oro Macuquino-66a. 27.06gm. A radiant 17th century hammered near-Gem Cob presenting soundly-struck motifs. As usual for these Peninsular issues, the present offering has an off-flan date but compensates with a bold assayer and clear mint mark. The crevices radiate an appreciable matte-sheen that gives the spectator a freshly-struck impression. Proudly weaving the highest grade assigned by NGC. Tied for Finest of only 5 Known!
