||Ferdinand VI gold 8 Escudos 1751 LM-J, KM50, AU58 NGC. An intricately designed three-year type and the first year of the portrait-style 8 Escudos issuance after the transition from "cob" coinage. This example has few rivals in term of eye appeal; vivid peach-orange tone bathes the left side of the obverse while reflective gleam adorns the fields. Perhaps most pleasing, the strike is fully rendered and no planchet flaws are present.
Realized $7,050.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
