This specimen was lot 24156 in Heritage sale 3026 (Long Beach, October 2013), where it sold for $2,702.50. The catalog description[1] noted, "Ferdinand VI gold 8 Escudos 1750-J, MS61 PCGS, fully brilliant and prooflike with no obvious flaws, minor handling in the obverse fields." The Nuestra Sonora de la Luz treasure rendered this type, heretofore extremely rare, quite available though still expensive for the average collector. All the specimens recovered were dated 1750-51; the other dates (1752-58) remain rare.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 27.07 g, .917 fine gold, .798 troy oz AGW.
