Mexico 8 Reales 1733 "Klippe in AU! 2nd Finest We've Had" NGC 53
Over the years we've owned maybe a dozen of these, including the Finest Known NGC 62, and of all the Certified examples we've had, this piece by far impresses me the most! Why? Because its Atypical to find a Full Crown and Full Dated and Shield, as well as Mint Mark, Assayer and Denomination all clearly struck and displayed. But, perhaps what pops the most to me on this piece of Treasure is the Underlying Dark toning in the fields and between the devices that really accentuates the beautiful design. Generally, as you may know these don't typically come above VF 25 or 30, this one of the Rare higher grades, but as I mentioned earlier, more importantly is the complete strike, design and devices. Truly an above the fray piece of Historical Treasure!
