Lima, Peru, cob 4 escudos, 1710H, encapsulated NGC MS 62, from the 1715 Fleet (stated inside slab), Tauler Plate Coin. Lima, Peru, cob 4 escudos, 1710H, encapsulated NGC MS 62, from the 1715 Fleet (stated inside slab), Tauler Plate Coin. S-L25a; KM-37; CT-213. Perfectly round and undoubled, with full and choice pillars-and-waves and cross-lions-castles, muted toning and luster. In the NGC census this piece is second only to an MS 64 on record, but in the consignor's notes for this coin it was stated that this specimen is the "finest of only three known." What is particularly interesting about this piece is that the 1 of the date is punched over a circular area showing the likely erasure of a 0 in the die, along with a clear 0/0 or 0/9 for the final digit, making it probably 1710/09 and possibly unique. NGC #3354513-004. From the 1715 Fleet, and Plate Coin #98 on page 392 of Tauler's Oro Macuquino (2011).
