    Amazing Fine Work Segovia 8 Escudos

    Philip V gold 8 Escudos 1708 (Aqueduct)-Y AU58 NGC, Segovia mint, KM277 (this coin), Cal-150 (same), Onza-453 (same), Chaves-695 (same), Cay-9912. 26.87gm. Of the utmost rarity, an incredible Segovian 8 Escudos from the first year of production for the series. Struck only in 1708 and 1717 before the established issue began in 1721, these initial types are considered trials by some and, when examining the fantastic die arrangement and quality of the present offering, this is not a hard fact to believe. Struck ever-so-slightly off-center on an oversized flan yet still bearing full edge dentils, the designs fantastically well-executed with only trivial surface rub defining the grade. Much of the field is matte with die-polish lines, flaring occasionally into dazzling, lustrous brilliance in the recesses. The fact that this very coin is the plate in so many references should serve as testament to its beauty, and without a doubt few can represent the type so finely as this. Simply the best, a coin which should surely ignite fervor in the heart of any collector of Spanish material, and encourage premium bidding to match.
