Aureo sale 261, lot 358
This specimen was lot 358 in Aureo y Calicó sale 261 (Barcelona, July 2014), where it sold for €380 (about US$610 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,

This type was struck in Madrid and Seville 1729-42 and is rather rare. One escudos were struck in metropolitan Spain throughout the eighteenth century but do not become common until the issues of Charles III in the 1770's. The SCWC does not list a 1741 for Seville.
