    Philip II gold Cob 2 Escudos ND (1556-1598) G-A MS65 NGC, Granada mint, Fr-168, Cal-41, Cay-4087. 6.77gm. The sole finest known example of this normally well-circulated type, and indeed one of the only examples of Spanish gold from this era to achieve the contested gem status. Bright and buttery luster bounces off the edges of the superbly-struck devices, the shield astoundingly strong, each line of the coat-of-arms design standing out in bold relief against the soft satiny surfaces of the fields. Almost no weakness is discernible throughout, the lettering crisp and easily legible. An enviable example of the type.
