Aureo sale 261, lot 212
This specimen was lot 212 in Aureo y Calico sale 261 (Barcelona, July 2014), where it sold for €220 (about US$353 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1574. Felipe II. Utrecht. 1 escudo Felipe. Plata agria. Escasa. (MBC). (Philip II (1556-98), county of Utrecht, philipsdaalder of 1574. Planchet cracks, scarce, very fine.)"
This type, listed for 1573-74, is not listed as expensive but usually comes in poor condition as most were badly struck. It is mentioned but not pictured in Davenport. This issue came as the province of Utrecht was deciding whether to side with the Catholic king of Spain or the Protestant rebels which later she joined. The Royal Dutch mint resides in Utrecht today.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver.

Catalog reference: Dav-8520, Vti. 1232.
