Description: This coin is a very rare 2 escudos minted in Toledo Spain. To date, this is the only specimen ever graded by PCGS in any grade. In addition, this coin is the example coin used in the Spanish coin catalog “Oro Macuquino” written by Rafael Tauler Fesser and published in 2020 (see #59b). You can download this catalog for free at https://www.tauleryfau.com/en/tauler-editions/. This coin is nearly perfectly centered on both sides, the shield, mint mark, and assayer are all crisp and clear and just look at that gorgeous crown! Despite a few scratches on the reverse, this coin radiates much of its original luster and is strikingly beautiful.
This is a perfect coin for any collector of Spanish gold doubloons!
