    Sicily. Philip II of Spain 4 Tari 1562 AU58 PCGS, Messina mint, MIR-317/7. A quite handsome example from this popular hammered Sicilian series, the present offering has managed to retain a high amount of eye-appeal despite clear evidence of double-striking. Once the onlooker turns to rotate the coin in hand, the slate gray surfaces reveal hidden iridescence that bursts forth, especially on the reverse, into flames of russet orange, pale yellow, and sapphie hues that completely captivate. Certainly second-to-none in terms of eye-appeal for the grade, and worthy of a premium as such.
