    Finest Graded Chile 8 Escudos

    Ferdinand VI gold 8 Escudos 1751 So-J MS66★ NGC, Santiago mint, KM3, Cal-72, Onza-644. It will come as no surprise that this absolutely extraordinary offering represents the single highest graded of the type by NGC or PCGS. Indeed, no other Chile 8 Escudos has even entered the MS66 level, and this piece has graduated even from this extraordinary grade through the coveted 'star' designation indicating exceptional eye appeal. It is hard to fully express the brightness of this specimen, its fields intensely glossy and prooflike to an extent almost never seen on coins of this age. Besides some soft striking in the centers, the production quality is clearly immensely high and the surfaces almost entirely free from contact marks and scuffs. An impeccable piece, and for the grade conscious collector of colonial 8 Escudos, you will simply not be able to obtain a better specimen than this.
