Lot description:


COLOMBIA. Cob 2 Escudos, 1743-F S. Bogota Mint, Assayer Sebastian de Rivera (S). Philip V. PCGS AU-50.
Fr-8; KM-17.2; Cal-Type 243 (Unlisted date); RL-M80S-16, 1743. The second finest certified of the date and Assayer's letter on either the NGC or PCGS population reports, two finer (both NGC AU-55). This date, typically associated with the previous Assayer Malano, exhibits a clear bold "S" to the right of the shield with an "F" from the mintmark to the left. The centers are well struck with good definition offering a nearly complete shield and a full complete cross, though design features in the peripheries are somewhat flat and irregular. The first two letters of the monarchs name and ordinal are clear on the obverse with bold last three digits of the date "743" on the reverse. This handsome minor gold issue exhibits even wear primarily contained to the high points and exposed areas with minor earthen deposits and a pale golden coloration. Pleasing to the eye, this charming piece is sure to excite advanced collectors of the series seeking RARE and unusual pieces to add depth to their numismatic holdings.
