拍品描述 1755年斐迪南六世4埃斯库多 PCGS AU 55

An historical landmark, this is the only known example of the first milled 4 Escudos of Colombia. Richly toned with orange and coppery highlights around the peripheries of both sides but especially bold on the obverse. Sharply struck and nicely lustrous for the grade, with some reflective texture visible on the obverse and more shining brightly from the protected areas of the reverse. Denticles frame both sides, but those at the upper left obverse are longest. A short scratch crosses the field above 17 of the date, and a dull scrape is present between the crown and EQ of SEQUORS, but otherwise no notable marks are seen. Further, no planchet flaws or striking anomalies are present, a testament to the skill of the mint workers in Bogotá and their ability to create a fine product during their first efforts using coining mills and the advanced technology that accompanied it.<br /><br />Traditional interpretations of the technological changeover at the mint at Santa Fe suggested that hammered cob coinage stopped before milled coinage began. However, the existence of both hammered and milled coins dated 1755 suggests that the transition was more gradual, even that the two genres of coins were struck contemporaneously. Even before this coin was discovered in 2004, students of this series knew there was a good possibility of a milled survivor from 1755. A.M. Barriga Villabas <em>Historia De Las Casa De Moneda</em> records that 32 marks of milled gold coinage was produced in Santa Fe in 1755, equal to 2,176 Escudos. That figure is dwarfed by the 8,393 marks of hammered gold coinage produced that year. Gold cobs of 1755 are extremely rare today, and the existence of even a single milled gold coin from Santa Fes 1755 mintage is a miracle.<br /><br />In 2013, lightning struck twice when a 1755-S 8 Escudos was discovered and auctioned by Stacks Bowers Galleries. Previously unknown and totally new to numismatics, the coin brought $223,250. If all 32 marks of gold were devoted to 8 Escudo production in 1755, the mintage would have been just 272 coins. If the gold was evenly divided between 8 Escudos and 4 Escudos, the mintages would have been 136 specimens of the onza and 272 4 Escudos. Regardless of the original mintage, the surviving population is finite and confirmed: just one example of this coin exists.<br /><br />This coin has appeared at auction only twice, in 1943 and 2005. No other 4 Escudos from any mint could be considered rarer or more historically important than this one. <br /> From the Eldorado Collection of Colombian and Ecuadorian Coins.<p>From American Numismatic Rarities sale of the Louis E.
