Choice VF Pistole of Popayan, 1767-J, NGC VF-35

SOLD

Details

Colombia. 1767-J 2 escudos. Popayan mint. VF-35 (NGC). Rich yellow gold with coppery toning and traces of lustre around the legends on both obverse and reverse. The surfaces are even and pleasing, showing just the light minor hairlines typical of circulated gold of this era. A little dig is noted within the G at 12:00 on the obverse, harmless encrustation at SE of SEQUOR on reverse. A handsome and desirable pistole from the colonial era. This denomination was one of the two most common gold coins in early America, perhaps the most common in the early 18th century though it seems to have yielded that title to the Portuguese half Joe after midcentury. Rarely found in Mint State, this example offers strong eye appeal for a coin in its lightly circulated grade.
