Description Carlos III gold 8 Escudos 1762 LM-JM, KM68, Fr-24, XF45 NGC. Two-year type. Moderately circulated but highly appealing because of its originality, the present coin has antique orange-gold tone that haloes the devices and legends and gives a touch of flash to the surfaces. Several ghosted planchet striations are noted in the centers and one minor lamination is spotted near the reverse crown, but these striking issues are incredibly common for the type. Minimal post-strike marks exist. A scarce and popular type, this coin will certainly please its next owner. Ex: ?Colonel? E.H.R. Green; Green Estate? Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson. Realized $4,406.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
