Sincona sale 51, lot 2930
This specimen was lot 2930 in Sincona sale 51 (Zurich, October 2018), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted,
"Felipe II. 1556-1598. 4 Escudos o. J. Sevilla. Selten in dieser Erhaltung. NGC AU58. Überdurchschnittlich gut ausgeprägt. (kingdom of Spain, Philip II, 1556-98, undated four escudos, Seville mint. Rare in this condition, Extremely well struck, about uncirculated.)"
The assayer's initial is the square "D" below the "S". The Seville began dating its product in 1588, so this coin was likely made before that.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 3.38 g, .931 fine silver, this specimen 13.46 g.

Catalog reference: Fr-158, Cayón no. 4143.
