||Carlos IV gold Escudo 1789 NG-M, KM46, VF25 NGC. The first year of this two-year transitional issue and a design type of considerable collector interest. The bust of Carlos III appears on the obverse and the ordinal of his son Carlos IV around the legends. A very pleasing example for the grade with no eye-catching marks atop honestly worn surfaces. Ex: ?Colonel? E.H.R. Green; Green Estate? Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson.
