1821年墨西哥独立战争费迪南德七世8埃斯库多 NGC AU 55
MEXICO. War of Independence. 8 Escudos, 1821-Ga FS. Guadalajara Mint. Ferdinand VII. NGC AU-55. Fr-58; KM-164; Cal-Type 420 # 1749; Cayon-16504; Grove-2003; Onza-1206. Draped Bust type from portrait punches intended for the silver 8 Reales. The single second finest certified of the type on the NGC population report, only one finer (MS 62).
An EXTREMELY RARE and heavily sought after type that seldom appears on the market in any condition with very few examples known. This fully original looking survivor offers bold obverse details with some weakness in the center of the reverse due to insufficient die pressure. The lovely rich sunset hued patina radiates from the devices with minor earthen deposits in the crevasses and plenty of remaining luster offering originality that one can hope for when seeking out highly in demand issues.
The opportunity to acquire such an incredible rarity does not present itself often and as such much consideration should be taken by advanced Mexican and world gold collectors alike. We expect to see serious competition for the chance to add this highly coveted trophy piece to a fine cabinet of a numismatic connoisseur. From the Las Colinas Collection.
