This specimen was lot 40162 in Stack's Bowers ANA sale (Philadelphia, August 2018), where it sold for $1,440. The catalog description[1] noted, "COLOMBIA. 1773-JS 2 Escudos. Popayán mint. Carlos III (1759-1788). MS-62 (PCGS). Another high grade early portrait piece from Popayán. This non-overdate die shows a bit less of the rusted die texture seen on the previous, allowing the cartwheel luster to appear even more pronounced. Very sharp and attractive, light yellow with faint green overtones and superb visual appeal. From the Eldorado Collection of Colombian Coins. Ex. Hans M.F. Schulman's sale of June 1972, lot 94." This type was struck at Nuevo Reino (Bogotá) and Popayán 1772-84 and is probably the most common two escudos of colonial Latin America.
