from the Stack's Bowers 2018 NYINC sale, lot 11197
Colombia SB118-11197r.jpg

This specimen was lot 11197 in Stack's Bowers NYINC sale (New York, January 2018), where it sold for $2,400. The catalog description[1] noted, "COLOMBIA. 1780/79-JJ 8 Escudos. Santa Fe de Nuevo Reino (Bogotá) mint. Carlos III (1759-1788). AU-55 (PCGS). Frosty and highly lustrous, showing little evidence of wear though scattered bagmarks are visible across both sides. A few specks of harmless detritus are seen, including in front of the portrait's lips. The strike is good, though the obverse die is quite fatigued, with a break on A of CAROL, two in the field near the bust, and other raised artifacts elsewhere. Very attractive and richly original. From the Eldorado Collection of Colombian and Ecuadorian Coins. From Stack's sale of April 1975, lot 268." This "standard bust" eight escudos, struck 1772-84, superseded the "rat nose" bust used at Bogota 1762-71. The Popayán mint also adopted the new bust, dropping the old bust of the prior king, Ferdinand VI, used until 1771. The type marked a debasement from .917 fine to .901 fine gold.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 27.07 g, .901 fine gold, .784 troy oz AGW.

Catalog reference: KM 50.1, Fr-35, Restrepo M72.19.
