Benefactor robinjojo Posted June 21, 2022 · Benefactor Benefactor Share Posted June 21, 2022 (edited) This is a Lima 8 escudos cob that I bought from Dan Sedwick back in the summer of 2001, so it's been well overdue for a snap. While this coin is dated 1715, it is not from that ill fated fleet. The strike is generally well centered for these coins, and there's part of the second date (bottom parts) running along the obverse between around 10 and 12 o'clock, following the "ANNO" as "715". The leading "1" is omitted in the legend due to space limitations as it also is across the obverse. Also, the 5 in the date is the Spanish style 5, resembling a sickle. Lima 8 escudos, Philip V, 1715, Assayer M. KM 38.2 26.8 grams So, please post your gold, silver or bronze cobs, or anything else you wish! Thanks Edited June 22, 2022 by robinjojo 19 1 1 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
