PERU. Cob 8 Escudos, 1711-L M. Lima Mint. Philip V. PCGS MS-63.
Fr-7; KM-38.2; Cal-2119. Weight: 26.94 gms. Incredibly attractive and alluring, this choice specimen, outside of a few areas of subtle weakness, offers a great strike with a fairly clear date--the final digit being somewhat obfuscated on account of a die shift. Brilliantly gold overall, with some orangish hints in the recesses and a slightly matte nature to the fields. Given the cruder means of manufacture for these types, it would be difficult to improve upon the quality offered here.
Estimate: $15000 - $25000
