Philip V gold Cob 8 Escudos 1714 Mo-J MS63 PCGS, Mexico City mint, KM57.3, Cal-2212, Onza-396 (Few specimens known), Oro Macuquino-396. 27.08gm. Type with date on reverse, and GRAT obverse legend. Highly collectible among the colonial gold Cob series, with Calicó stating that only a few specimens are known in his book, La Onza. While the date is mostly off-flan, with only the lower part of the last digit discernible, this single year type is easily identifiable. Bearing an eye-appeal seen in 1715 Fleet shipwreck pieces, this choice specimen is dressed in matte-like sun-gold surfaces with only the trivial trace of handling. Among the handful of certified examples, only two rank finer, making for a prime opportunity to own an example from this hotly-contested series.
