This specimen was lot 3281 in Künker sale 294 (Osnabruck, Germany, July 2017), where it sold for €9,000 (about US$12,130 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"SPANIEN, KÖNIGREICH, Carlos II. 1665-1700. 4 Escudos 1677/6, Barcelona. In US-Plastikholder der NGC mit der Bewertung AU 55. GOLD. Von großer Seltenheit. Sehr schön-vorzüglich.

This date is not listed in the SCWC or Cayón; we presume it is rare. The type was struck 1676-84, 1697-99. The Segovia was already producing milled four escudos (KM 185.2).
