Description

    Ferdinand VI gold 4 Escudos 1754 Mo-MF XF Details (Obverse Scratched) NGC, Mexico City mint, KM138, Cal-111. A well-detailed and partially lustrous coin, with a few rather mild pin-scratches to the left of the bust on the obverse defining the grade. A rare date of this elusive type (only 765 coins were struck), with only two other offerings in the past 15 years known to the cataloguer: the Caballero de las Indias specimen (Aureo 4/2009, lot 376 hammered at E5,0000) and a specimen sold by UBS (UBS 3/2007, lot 465 hammered at CHF10,500). Struck from the same pair of dies - with a damaged "D" in "IND" - as the Vidal Quadras specimen (No. 10025), which appears to be the finest extant.

    Had we endeavored to sell it without your support, it would have taken us at least 10 lifetimes, i.e. it would have been impossible.
