Description Carlos IV gold 2 Escudos 1790/89 PTS-PR, KM66, Fr-8, XF Details (Planchet Flaw) NGC. A two-year transitional issue with the bust of Carlos III, but with the ordinal of his son and new king, Carlos IV at the legends. This type is very scarce in any grade. It is a clear overdate issue, with two of the loops of the former 8 beneath the 9 in the date. A large flan crack (as made) begins at 7:00 on the obverse, but has limited effect on overall eye-appeal. Realized $2,350.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
