Session C, Lot 40001

Estimate: 750 USD   |   Starting price: 380 USD Price realized: 2'160 USD
Rare 1757-J Escudo of Bogotá
COLOMBIA. 1757-J Escudo. Santa Fe de Nuevo Reino (Bogotá) mint. Ferdinand VI (1746-1759). Restrepo 12.3. EF-40 (PCGS).

Pleasing yellow gold with deeper toning around the peripheries. Sharp and pleasing, with just one short old scratch in the right obverse field. A rare issue, among the earliest milled issues of this denomination from Colombia following its 1756 debut. Restrepo doesn't list a 1757-S from this mint, though one was offered in the April 2015 Cáyon sale. This issue likely followed that directly. This piece is plated in Restrepo with an image taken from a Glendining's catalog of indeterminate date, likely the auction from which the Norwebs acquired it. Historic and elusive.
From Spink America's sale of the Norweb Collection, March 1997, lot 289 (part).
