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.
