1869 Hand on Book Mexican 8 Escudo NGC MS 63
This 1869 Hand on Book gold 8 Escudo from Mexico is an absolute blaster. Many of these issues come softly struck but this stunning Mint State 63 is fully detailed and centered dripping with original mint luster.
The design is one of our favorites when it comes to world coins. The reverse depicts the seal of Mexico to this day, with an eagle on a cactus holding a snake in its talons. The obverse shows a hand holding a pole with a cap on the top, about to write in the book of law.
Graded Mint State 63 by NGC and struck in Mexico City, its difficult to find coins with such attractive eye appeal and truly proof like surfaces. Only 22 of these have been certified in all grades combined and this is one of only three in Mint State 63 with none known finer.
Containing over $1400 worth of gold alone, we feel high end examples of this series are overlooked and undervalued. Coin shown is the exact coin you will receive. Highly recommended and one of the finest coins we have seen from this series from 1823-1873.
