from the Stack's Bowers 2018 ANA sale, lot 40012
Colombia SB818-40012r.jpg

This specimen was lot 40012 in Stack's Bowers ANA sale (Philadelphia, August 2018), where it sold for $4,800. The catalog description[1] noted, "COLOMBIA. 1771-VJ Escudo. Santa Fe de Nuevo Reino (Bogotá) mint. Carlos III (1759-1788). VF Detail — Chop Mark (PCGS). Medium yellow gold with darker contrasting toning around devices and legends. The quatrefoil stamp marked behind the portrait will be familiar to most Latin American gold specialists, though it has thus far never been identified; on this coin it is tucked away fairly unobtrusively. This piece is otherwise choice and appealing for the grade. From the Eldorado Collection of Colombian Coins. Ex. Stack's sale of December 1986, lot 1324."

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 3.38 g, .917 fine gold, .100 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: Restrepo 50.6.
