    Description

    Colombia. Carlos IV 8 Escudos 1793JJ. Bogota mint. KM62.1. VF. Edge filed or clipped, marked with LAC monogram hallmark in rounded cartouche. Weight almost precisely correct for a $15 doubloon at the 1793 Federal standard, actual value based on 27 2/5 grains per dollar equal to $15.04 (412.0 grains). Edge device no longer present anywhere, some evidence of filing though circulation after regulation made the edge rather smooth. Circular hallmark in right field an apparent LAC monogram, unidentified and perhaps not American. Minor hairlines, many scattered marks on reverse give a pebbly look and may indicate either sweating or simply heavy circulation. The precision of the current weight makes a post-1793 American regulation seem most likely; a Spanish doubloon regulated to the standard $15 Federal value should have weighed 411 grains, a statistically irrelevant differential.

    Provenance: Ira and Larry Goldberg's sale of June 2001, Lot 1970.
    From the Edward Roehrs Collection of U.S. Regulated Gold.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
