Nice EF 1760 Pillar Dollar of Carlos III

SOLD

Details

Mexico. 1760 MM Pillar 8 reales. Mexico City Mint. Carlos III. EF-45 (NGC). Glossy deep gray, more richly and evenly toned on the reverse with shades of navy blue and hints of gold. Sharp and attractive, free of notable marks or mint-made flaws, showing just some very subtle hairlines under a light and a good glass. PLUS ULTRA is complete and bold on the pillars, and a good deal of lustre clings to peripheral legends and design elements. Just a handsome Pillar dollar, the archetypical coin in a collection of the world coins that circulated in early America. 1760 is an interesting date, struck during the high point of the French and Indian War in North America, the year Canada fell completely into English hands. Among coins of Mexico, it's also an interesting year as the debut of Carlos III, the monarch who brought Spain (and its colonies) into the American Revolution on the side of France and the United States. This pleasing, natural example will fit into a well formed collection of either Pillar 8 reales by date or types that were prominent in the commerce of the American colonies.
