Aureo sale 269, lot 245
This specimen was lot 245 in Aureo sale 269 (Barcelona, July 2015), where it sold for €2,200 (about US$2,842 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1757. Fernando VI. Santiago. J. 8 escudos. Leves marquitas. Parte de brillo original. Rara. MBC+/EBC-. (Chile, Ferdinand VI, eight escudos of 1757, Santiago mint, light marks, partial mint luster, rare, very fine to extremely fine.)"
The 1757 was one of a series struck 1750-58 at Santiago, Chile. A hoard of doubloons of Ferdinand VI was discovered in Uruguay some years ago, rendering the type much more available, but the coins recovered were all dated 1750-51. This date remains very rare.

Recorded mintage: unknown.
