Description:
Exceedingly Rare 1841 S-MV Ecuador 4 Escudos
Republic gold 4 Escudos 1841-S MV, KM19, AU58 NGC, sharply struck and attractive with nearly full mint luster and just a faint rub on the cheek of Libertad. 1841 was the final date of the 4 Escudos series and is very rare with only about 4 known, including one piece impounded in the British Museum. The famous Maulme Collection lacked this date leading Ecuador expert Bill Christensen to presume that it did not exist. Additionally, the incredible quality of this example allows for a clear reading of the S initial on the base of the bust, instead of the A used earlier in 1841, and thus creating a new and extremely rare sub-type. An historic opportunity to acquire one of the most elusive of all Ecuadoran coins. Krause catalog price(s) for this item: $7000 in VF.

Please note: Many Krause World Coin catalog prices are updated infrequently. Therefore this information is offered to bidders as a time-saving convenience only. Some Krause prices may be outdated and/or inaccurate due to fluctuating markets, newly discovered hoards, data entry errors (whether on Krause's part or ours) or other factors.
